Occasus

A Film by Petja Pulkrabek

Synopsis

Isaac, an African refugee, becomes stranded on an island in the West. But the supposed paradise turns out to be his private hell. Driven by pain and anger, he makes his way across a country full of contradictions, which highlight his dreadful past and elucidate his tragic journey to Europe. The loss he thereby had to suffer drives him to a bloody act of revenge.
