Overview: MIT „BABEL” IST ALEJANDRO GONZÁLEZ IÑÁRRITU EIN FILMISCHES GESAMTKUNSTWERK ÜBER ZUFALL UND SCHICKSAL, URSACHE UND WIRKUNG, SCHULD UND SÜHNE GELUNGEN.

Ein Schuss in der Wüste von Marokko ist das auslösende Moment einer ganzen Kette von Ereignissen, die vier Schicksale von unterschiedlichen Menschen auf drei Kontinenten miteinander verbindet: Da ist ein amerikanischer Tourist, der in Marokko um das Leben seiner schwer verletzten Frau kämpft. Ein mexikanisches Kindermädchen, das verzweifelt versucht, die Grenze mit ihren beiden amerikanischen Schützlingen zu überqueren. Ein taubstummer japanischer Teenager, der gegen den eigenen Vater und dessen mysteriöse Vergangenheit rebelliert. Und zwei kleine Jungs auf der Flucht vor der eigenen Verantwortung. Geschichten und Schicksale, die nur scheinbar keine Verbindung haben...
