German Spotlight- My Blind Date With Life

As his vision fades from perfection to nearly blind as a teenager, a young man is bombarded by people who attempt to deter him from his dreams. But with much determination, and a sly best friend, he manages to fool the world and get an impossible apprenticeship at the fanciest hotel in Munich. His carefully formed façade begins to crumble when he falls in love with a young woman, who may put the job of his dreams in jeopardy.
