The Chances of the World Changing PDF Print E-mail

Directed By Eric Daniel Metzgar



Richard Ogust was featured all over the news when filmmaker Eric Metzgar decided to join him on his quest. Ogust had abandoned his writing career to shelter over 1600 endangered species of turtles in his Manhattan apartment. But this is only the beginning. Evicted from his apartment, Ogust must secure funding and a location for an institute dedicated to his animals. Time is running out, and if Ogust can't build the institute he will have to find another home for the turtles.
