Your place in the world often seems to be a question of fate. Where you’re born can grant certain privileges, and fate bans some people to unreal places or gives them unusual challenges. It is easy to become resigned, blame others, or make demands. But some individual personalities stand out in these kinds of situations. People who make sense of their fates through their own actions.
Where do such people get the strength to grow above and beyond themselves? How do they find meaning in such fated circumstances? Medical Doctor and filmmaker Jochen Isensee examines these questions using individual, personal stories in this docu-series. The protagonists tell their own stories, without the judgement of the filmmaker.
A mini series with 4 episodes taking place in Uganda, Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands.
