Neben den Gleisen

Directed by Dieter Schumann
Germany, 2016


Boizenburg is a small town in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, in the northeast of Germany. The small kiosk close to the local railway station runs from 5:00am until 10:00pm and hosts all sorts of guests. In late 2015 thousands of refugees arrive at the station on their way to the reception camp.
