The Disciple / Auf dem Wachstumspfad

The Disciple

Seeing God is not proof, says Kevin, aged 13. No, feeling is the only real proof of God’s love.

It was God’s hand that brought his family from Kazakhstan to Germany. Now he joins his parents at their Pentecostal church three times a week. And since a healthy spirit needs a healthy body, Kevin boxes. He trains with his father in the garden. Kevin is tired. He doesn’t want to study, when he’s older. „It makes you turn away from God. What I really want is a nice garden. I’ll do it myself, like my father.“

THE DISCIPLE is a film from the alien world of Kevin’s routine. A world of physical and mental discipline.
