I thought that this documentary was amazing. I particularly liked the family, and I enjoyed comparing their lifestyle to the more common one that most of us live. The two daughters were growing up strong, engaged, competent. It think they will do well in their lives. Ruedi is a man fully living his destiny, with integrity, hard work, and courage. Very interesting.
