He has nothing more to lose than the clothes he is wearing. He´s a stranger in the city of hope. The mission: get a residence permit. In a few hours he experiences happiness, grief, hope, humility and disappointment. The number “37.501” becomes his destiny. What remains is a novel by Dostojewski. What comes is a letter that reveals evil.

Director Statement

“D for Dostojewski” was the first attempt to create a movie which is based on a complex story that concerns us all, without disposing of much money. It is my personal desire to tell stories. Every single human life is a great story. This is the corner I come from as a writer. To hit peoples emotions by creating big visual stories is the corner where I want to get. This is my statement. This is my passion.
