Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Documentary filmmaker Sebastian Dehnhardt offers an intimate look into the lives of Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko, two sibling boxers from the Ukraine who moved to Germany in 1996 and quickly rose to the status of role models for millions of adoring fans. As Wladimir ascended to the top of the Heavyweight Boxing world, Vitali entered the world of politics and seemed poised for a presidential run. And it would hardly be a surprise if he succeeded; not only are both brothers multi-lingual, but they have also earned their PhDs. In this film, friends and family of the Klitschko brothers reveal how a childhood spend growing up on Soviet military bases helped to shape their lives, how the Chernobyl disaster directly impacted their family, and how they both beat the odds to become two of the most powerful, respected pugilists on the planet. Incredibly, through it all, both brothers have maintained their vow never to face off against one another in the ring.
