In this startling, neon-lit reinterpretation of Alfred Döblin’s 1929 novel, Alexanderplatz, Francis is an African immigrant struggling to make a new life for himself; without papers, without a nationality, and without a work permit, his good intentions and life spin out of control, as he is sucked into the thumping, neon-streaked urbanscape of Berlin’s underworld.
