Dima, a young petty criminal, is about to be deported from Germany when he meets a young student, Sarah, who is working on a documentary film about the lack of opportunities available to young foreigners.

She offers him sanctuary in her garret – just for the sake of the film of course. 

Becoming aware of the attraction between them, Dima plays more than a role in Sarah’s documentary and they gradually leave the ground beneath their feet and learn, step by step, to fly.

Some press comments: 

„One has to love “Fly” and if it’s only for Sandra Hüller... A small daedalean and from all actors 

magnificently played story.“ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) 

„This heartbreaking short film was directed by Piotr J. Lewandowski... Look forward to 25 minutes 

of filmic indulgence.“ (IKDB.de) 

„You certainly wouldn’t mind watching a little more of this desperate passion between Sandra Hüller
