A powerful, true story of a West African refugee's fight to survive in a German city that does not welcome him is told in this fictionalized reconstruction of the actual events. Frederic Otomo (Isaac de Bankole), an immigrant lacking the papers that would allow him to find proper employment, gets by with the aid of a Catholic charity. The target of verbal abuse and institutionalized racism, Otomo finally reaches his breaking point and physically assaults an intolerant subway attendant. Fleeing from the scene, he becomes the target of a city-wide manhunt. "A tough exploration of intolerance and dislocation" (A.O. Scott,The New York Times). In German with English subtitles.
