The Great Fortune

Welcome to the world of an extraordinary man who has everything he wants, but is missing the one thing he needs

The Great Fortune Meet Mirco Kuball: an ultra-wealthy, flamboyant, sophisticated and outspoken man who happens to have Down’s syndrome. This touching film explores an unexpected life. It moves through the castle where he lives; the massage parlours and restaurants where he indulges; and the theatre where he performs. But beneath the opulent showman lies a man like any other, who realises that beyond shelter, food, and companionship, nothing else counts.
