Go, Went, Gone

A widowed, newly-retired classics professor, an East German subsumed at the fall of the Wall into the West, a brilliant intellectual slowly climbs out of his head into an awakened heart through his gradual involvement with a band of African migrants, stranded undocumented, in Berlin. A profound and astonishing portrait of the world we live in and the lives we lead.
