Film content

Five strangers from different nationalities share a journey from Berlin to Paris via car sharing and all have just one thing in common: getting to their destination easily and cheaply. When it turns out that one passenger has a serious problem that could get them all into trouble, the journey becomes a little more complicated. All he asks for is a little understanding and support from his fellow travellers. But it doesn't help that they are just as chaotic and helpless and can't trust him. Because he, who asks for help, keeps giving dubious explanations. A very strange group dynamic develops, the atmosphere in the confines of the car resembles a boiling pot. But everyone has their goal in mind, the journey must go on - how now depends on them!

"More than Strangers" will be released in German cinemas in summer 2024.
