Julius Werner & Manuel Zube
Manni sucht das Weite
Where there's a will, there's a way - and sometimes a very long one. Manuel has Down syndrome, and in a sports group for people with disabilities he meets Julius, an educator. The two men from Kiel are in their late 20s when they set off on the greatest adventure of their lives: eight weeks backpacking through Australia. They travel not only through the outback, to Melbourne or the Gold Coast, but above all to themselves.
After a five-part documentary that ARTE broadcast about the trip, Julius Werner has now written down his experiences with Manuel Zube. Manni sucht das Weite wants to encourage people with and without disabilities to go beyond their limits.
