“Hi, my name is Ben. I can’t talk but I can hear”
The true story of one ordinary old man and his extraordinary life. From his tiny, single-room on East 74th Street in New York City, Bernhardt Wichmann III spoke to and changed the lives of those around him; reconnecting his neighbours to values of friendship, humanity and happiness. And he did all this without speaking. Ben was a mute. His life is a story of how one man endured tragedy, illness, success and defeat, before finally encountering a miracle.
