Courage (Zivilcourage)

TV-Movie: 27.01.2010 | 20:15 Uhr | ARD/Das Erste

Peter Jordan, owner of a book shop in Berlin-Kreuzberg, faces a conflict between a gang and his conscience. After bearing witness to a violent crime, Peter transforms from being a loyal follower of the state’s legal system to defending his own rights at any cost. The background of migration and an air of despair in his neighborhood contrast sharply with Peter's world, where - despite the bars on the windows – he maintains his own island of education and opportunity.
