What can one man do to change the course of the world when it comes to war and peace? Then you have to become a superhero!
Hans Matheeuwsen has been running the peace office in Eindhoven for over thirty years, from which he offers independent information and documentation that focuses on the issues of war and peace. From his office he also fights the weapons industry in Eindhoven on a daily basis. It's David versus Goliath.
Artists Teun Castelein and Sasja Strengholt think that Hans should transform himself into a superhero. A marvel fighting for peace.
