Berlin Troika

During a stormy night of grave political crisis, an expert interpreter suffers a nervous breakdown. Young diplomat Konrad Gelb is recruited to step in and interpret between the two conflicting superpower leaders, who seem to hold the fate of humanity in their hands - an absurd responsibility, which by extension rests on the shoulders of the young interpreter. He must balance the oversized egos in the room and maneuver the world's destiny to either peaceful resolution or total annihilation. When my father was the age I am today, 27, he was a diplomat and interpreter during the Cold War. With “Berlin Troika”, we set out to playfully imagine a (semi-) fictionalized account of what it could’ve been like for someone like him to be directly involved in a most desperate political crisis, where unimaginable power and responsibility meets human fallibility and vulnerability. Who will be “victorious”?
