All I would say is, this short film well-deserved for the awards!
The 21-minute long short film portrays a young couple who abandon their new-born who was being uninvited, the baby grew up with hearing and speaking disabilities. He was then kidnapped and forced to beg by a gang leader. However, he still maintained his innocent smile, despite the fact that he had no idea that his life was about to be immersed in darkness. But, somehow his life began to shine upon him after he met a photographer. He observes life more closely, displays positive ideals via his eyeglasses, and educates people with whom he comes into contact with his innocent grins. One day when he was about to start his usual routine, he came upon an old lady who was sitting alone on an empty street.
She begged him for nourishment, which reminded him of his early days, so he brought the lady under his protection without realising it was his mother. As the film progresses, we would know who are the true handicaps, he made us wonder?
