Across the city

„Across the city“ shows a young man named Leon who relies on a wheelchair becauseof his muscular atrophy.

Born and raised in Berlin in 1995, he developed his condition as a child. In the summer he would have to be on constant hospital visits. Instead of being able to go on holiday with his family like other children his age, Leon‘s summer was planned for operations and subsequent rehabilitation stays.

Despite these experiences, he retained his positive and life-affirming character traits. Leon enjoys his life despite the fact he is wheelchair bound and does not limit him from travelling every day once again across the city in the wheelchair. Even if he encounters obstacles along the way: Leon doesn‘t let that stop him. He overcomes barriers and rolls on.
