The film is based on the true story of medal-winning Paralympian So Wa Wai, who overcame personal and physical struggles with the help of his mother to emerge the winner. The film was selected as the Hong Kong entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 94th Academy Awards.
In the post-screening talk, the speakers will share with us the challenges that the Paralympic athletes face and their steadfastness in overcoming their disadvantages/disabilities. Also, the speakers will tell us their views on ways to enhance people’s understanding towards the physically challenged people in our community and how to support the latter so that they would feel being respected and included.
