The lights of Berlin shine from across the River Oder, border with Poland. Is it the end of the world, or a gateway to a new life? Desperate Ukrainian refugees, failed entrepreneurs, young black marketers, and risk-taking interpreters all rub shoulders there. With a subtle balance between political issues and emotional and personal experiences plus an excellent ensemble cast, LICHTER vividly depicts a new Europe and a new European cinema.
