Inhalt

Self-taught filmmaker Tarek Ehlail turns to a dystopian vision set in a near future for his third feature film "Volt" after his first two productions "Chaostage – We are Punks!" (2008/09) and "Gegengerade – 20359 St. Pauli" (2010/11). The film's story centers on the policeman Volt who kills a French insurgent in a transit zone. His deed remains unpunished, but Volt's feeling of guilt increasingly drives him into his victim's world in a ghetto full of despair and anger. By day a policeman, Volt switches over to the other side at night and witnesses how his deed has triggered an ever deepening spiral of unrest - and comes to realize that he can never be forgiven for his actions
