Berlin AlexanderplatzThe timely adaptation of the bestselling novel.
As Francis is washed up on the shores of Southern Europe, he swears an oath to God: From now on, he wants to be a new, a better, a decent man. Soon after, Francis finds himself in Berlin. There he realizes how hard it is to be righteous when you are an illegal refugee in Germany – without papers, without nation and without a work permit. When he receives an enticing offer to earn easy money from the charismatic German Reinhold, Francis initially resists the temptation and maintains his oath, staying away from Reinhold's shady dealings. But eventually, he is sucked into Berlin's underworld and his life spirals out of control.
