Tengkwa leads a band of Dutch professional wrestlers and tries to train a new generation of super heroes. But the road to stardom is a rocky one.
In a world where fantasy meets reality Tengkwa leads a band of Dutch professional wrestlers and tries to train a new generation of super heroes. With slim chances of fame and glory and little money to speak off, only the most die-hard of them will succeed. RING OF DREAMS is an otherworldly exploration of what it takes to become what you are ultimately meant to be and tells the story of fighting for your dreams against the odds of our dreary daily lives.
