What if you are forced to assume the identity of another man and you then meet that man’s wife? Identity is at the heart of this film set in an unspecified time of war, displacement and a need for escape.

“Transit touchingly illuminates the close bonds that can form within migrant communities, even as it refuses to harbor any illusions about how easily those bonds can be broken.”Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“By turns intimate and expansive, Transit is a thrilling, at times harrowing, labyrinth of a movie.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
