In an attempt to flee Nazi-occupied France, Georg assumes the identity of a dead author but soon finds himself stuck in Marseilles, where he falls in love with Maria, a young woman searching for her missing husband. Transit movie follows Georg who flees from Paris to Marseille at the last moment. But even Marseille is only an intermediate point: in the port city there can be only those who can prove that they are planning to go further, and this means that permission is required to enter a potential country. Georg can do it easily, because his baggage contains documents in the name of the writer Weidel, who committed suicide, and the guarantee of visa issuance by the Mexican embassy. Georg takes Weidel’s name, and this allows him to move freely along with all the other refugees in the port city, hoping to get a ticket to the ship. Refugees congregate in the corridors of a small hotel, in the waiting room of consulates, in cafés and bars in the harbor. George became friends with Driss, the son of his late comrade Heinz, who was killed during an escape attempt. Then he meets Marie Weidel and falls in love with this mysterious woman who is looking for her missing husband, that same writer.
