The idea that even the most ordinary person can have an extraordinary impression on others is the central theme of Chad Kremer's first film Little Thumb. This documentary looks at the life of Frank Wybenga, a Dutch immigrant who in the mid 1950's escaped his dark past at a Nazi concentration camp by moving to the United States with his wife and infant son. In 2006, seven years after his death, Frank's eldest son and grandson journey back to the Netherlands to honor Frank's memory by revisiting his past, all while trying to bring some closure to their own.
