Francis, an African refugee toiling in illegal construction is given the opportunity to legalize his status in Germany by Reinhold, a charismatic and unstable drug dealer. Lured into the glamorous lifestyle, Francis quickly ascends the hierarchy of Berlin's criminal underworld to become its kingpin. The salvation of his Faustian pact comes in the form of the angelic escort Mieze, whose love will offer a chance at redemption. Yet at what cost?

"Alfred Döblin's classic novel "Berlin Alexanderplatz" gets a much-needed contemporary adaptation in director Burhan Qurbani's neon-lit, hyper-stylized operatic vision. Both a Shakespearean tragedy and an urban gangster drama, this film is a captivating exploration of fallible masculinity and a journey into contemporary Europe's heart of darkness." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
