BE THE FROG!

“Ambition, not greed, is what motivates me,” says Wilhelm. Now 65, he grew up in a village in Kazakhstan and moved to Germany in October 1991 with his wife and their four children. He was severely ill as a small child; the wrong medical treatment left him hindered in his mobility. A strong will and, as he says, ambition have allowed him to get by. In this documentary portrait, he proves to be a touching and inspiring conversation partner.
