Georg accepts Weidel's identity and lets himself drift along with all the other refugees in the port city, hoping to get hold of a ticket for a ship's passage. Then he meets Marie Weidel (Paula Beer) and falls in love with the mysterious woman who is looking for her missing husband - a writer ... Adaptation of the novel "Transit" by Anna Seghers.
