The Final Journey

The Final Journey

Leanders letzte Reise
A striking narrative about the Cossack tragic history, love, and forgiveness sending its leading characters on an emotional and dangerous quest.

When Eduard's wife dies, his daughter wants to put him in a home. Instead, the 92-year-old former German World War II officer decides to board a train to the Ukraine, followed by his granddaughter, to find the only woman he ever loved - just as a new war breaks out in the former Soviet Union in Spring, 2014.

Helmed by prize-winning director Nick Baker-Monteys, this gripping drama about love, forgiveness and the long shadows of the past sends its protagonists Jürgen Prochnow (Das Boot, 1981) and Petra Schmidt-Schaller (Stereo, 2014), on an emotionally challenging road trip through a land in turmoil.
