Heinrich Schoeneich is a cosmetic surgeon – but this is only one aspect of his life. For the past ten years, he has spent his vacations performing operations for poor people in developing countries such as Burma, Afghanistan and Nigeria. We went along with Dr. Schoeneich on one of his trips to Burma. What motivates a plastic surgeon who has it all back home to head for the rainforest and carry out surgical procedures there? A Good Samaritan syndrome? Adventure? Perhaps the need to assuage a sense of guilt? Occasionally, he even has doubts about his work back in Munich. But only occasionally. WAZ: "This film makes a deep impression on the viewer…It is indeed possible to offer genuine help, and the film reminds us of this fact without being pedantic.” FAZ: "Gentle, yet ruthless.”
