“The fateful meeting of a homeless couple and a restaurant owner on the brink of failure results in an outcome none of them could have predicted.”

It is a short film story about people helping each other, no matter what.

This story is to empower people to help others, you never know what may happen if you do. But while you are helping people, you do it not because you expect something back. You do it because it is from the heart. Now these days, people have forgotten how to do this and we want this movie to move people into trusted other people again, into helping others, and never ask for anything in return.

This is a short film with a powerful message. We do not just want this film to be shown at film festivals, we want this film to be shown to many groups, schools, and institutions that covers this very topic. Churches may also like to show this film to show how gratitude is the best way to be and the most peaceful way of being.
