Wim Wenders' "Paris, Texas" Protected content the story of loss upon loss. This man, whose name is Travis, was once married and had a little boy. Then that all went wrong, and he lost his wife and child, and for years he wandered. Now he will find his family and lose it again, this time not through madness but through sacrifice. He will give them up out of his love for them.

This unconventional road movie is based on a script by Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard and tells the story of Travis, a man who wanders out of Mexico and into Texas one day, in the blazing heat of the “Big Bend”. Travis does not speak a word. He also seems to have largely lost his memory. But he is driven by his wish to find his family again: his young wife Jane (Nastassja Kinski), whose life he seems to have placed in danger through his pathological jealousy, and his seven-year-old son Hunter. For four years, Travis was thought to be dead.....

PARIS, TEXAS is considered Wenders’s best-known and internationally most successful film.
