In the world of pro-wrestling, where fantasy and reality intersect, it is hard to get to the top. Only the real go-getters will realise their dream.

'Reality is just a matter of perspective. If you understand this, anything is possible.' This is how the Amsterdam-based pro-wrestler Tengkwa begins his story. When he was six, Hulk Hogan was his great hero, who inspired him to eventually become a professional wrestler himself. Today, Tengkwa coaches a new generation of show wrestling superheroes, in a world in which fantasy and reality intersect. With a small chance of fame and glory and little money to realise their dream, only the diehards will succeed.
