Mercy und das Spiel des Lebens

A refugee story as a modern fairytale: Mercy Dorcas is the first African who is allowed to study at the prestigious Viennese Max-Reinhardt-Seminar. Her family cast her out, she made it to Europe and now she is at the beginning of a great career - or will it all fail again? The film follows the path of this unique, self-confident and strong young woman and accompanies her on the way through this crucial period in her young career.
