Transit is set in a contemporary Marseille wherein refugees from the past meet refugees from today, history meets the present, and all of their stories combine to create one eternal transit space. The German troops are just outside Paris. Georg escapes to Marseille at the last moment. Assuming the identity of a writer named Weidel, Georg tries to obtain one of the few scarce passages on a ship. But when he meets the mysterious Marie, his plans change.
