At over 8 feet tall, Sultan Kosen is the world's tallest man ... and he is still growing! In this all-new TLC special, we follow his extraordinary journey around the world not only in search of a cure to his gigantism but also to overcome his lonely existence.
As young boy in a Turkish village, Sultan dreamed of a simple life - to grow up, have a job and find a wife. At the age of 8, Sultan began to grow uncontrollably and by his teenage years, the extreme growth had forced him into isolation. Continuing to grow, he soon became the "World's Tallest Man" which brought Sultan fame and opportunities to travel around the world. While confronting his dangerous condition with medical attention, Sultan begins to seek out relationships. More than anything, Sultan longs for a wife and looks for love online, resulting in his first date ever. He also travels to the US to meet America's tallest man, former Harlem Globetrotters George Bell, and is encouraged with the new friendship. Although still growing, Sultan now lives with newfound confidence and bravery despite the continued threat to his life and his dreams.
