BEYOND WORDS

 

Michael, a young Polish immigrant and successful lawyer in Berlin, is visited by his estranged father from Poland. His father’s lack of love might have been the  reason behind Michael’s decision to emigrate. The weekend together is supposed to close the past, though it opens an old wound.  After his father’s departure the love and acceptance, he has found in Germany, feels different.
