„The perfect human – that’s me.” Mirco Kuball, the protagonist of „The Great Fortune“,                                     
a millionaire living alone in a huge castle. The camera follows him and his chauffeur on his way between                                     
luxurious boutiques, his dentist, massagist, cafés, etc. Yes, he has the down syndrome,                                     
and yes, he happens to fall in love with guys. But, much more important, he’s an artist which,                                     
as he states, „means being an actor. It has a lot of meanings. I am here. Or I am not here.                                     
But I’m still alive. And my house belongs to me.“
