              When a stressed-out Wolf tells his four-year-old daughter Nina that he can only spend ten more minutes reading her bedtime stories before he has to get back to work, she wishes that they could have a million minutes together 'on the really good things. Let's go so far away, until... we have time,' she says. Nina has cerebral ataxia and, although she is physically disabled, Wolf feels that the thing that really makes her different is her complete freedom of thought, uninhibited by political correctness and unlimited by the restrictions of 'reality'. As Wolf comes to understand the magnitude of her condition, he starts to reconsider what is most important in life. Despite a huge break-through in a career he has worked so hard for, he decides to step off the career ladder. Colleagues claim he is ruining his life, but Wolf slowly learns that fulfilling Nina's wish is worth much more than professional success. Wolf, his wife Vera, his son Simon and Nina spend a million minutes - two years - travelling through Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand, but the real journey is one of personal discovery. Wolf may have wanted the high-flying, well-paid career before Nina was born, but what does he want now? And what does it really mean to be rich, anyway? Nina's unique, frequently humorous world view teaches Wolf about the deeper meaning of life, and inspires him to question his values. What starts out as a simple experiment will forever change Wolf's family: what happens to people who take a million minutes for each other?
