Performers, Cast and Crew:
In this unlikely and at times wrenching love story, World War II has just ended and a processing error wrongfully lands 51 German POWs in a Soviet prison camp run by women. The guards' task of outing the SS officers hiding among the prisoners pits the men and women against each other. As the truth of the situation comes to light, hostility remains between some while love blossoms between others. IN TRANZIT is an enthralling period drama starring Thomas Kretschmann (VALKYRIE), Vera Farmiga (THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS), David Bruhl (INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), and John Malkovich (DANGEROUS LIASONS).
In the chaotic aftermath of WWII, a group of German POWs are mistakenly sent to a female-run Soviet prison camp. When the guards are given the task of weeding out the SS officers, they play a bitter game of cat and mouse with the prisoners. Both sides gradually learn that circumstances are not what they seem; prejudice is unavoidable; and love can be found in the most unlikely places.
