Description

Jana Wendt sets out to discover what drives us in the work we do. She follows a compelling group of people, from a boxer set for a comeback to a maverick priest, and a CEO whose company is mired in scandal to a forensic anthropologist investigating murder. Wendt witnesses the successes and frustrations, the body-blows and moments of joy experienced by people who consider what they do as the great passion of their lives. The result is a wonderfully observed and entertaining portrait of modern work.show more
