Does your name determine your destiny?
Kao Sheng, or “Cloud Tan” as he prefers, is a teenager who’s just about legal driving age, but has a stature of a 13 year old.
He’s short, and sucks at school sports. He thinks he’s a loser, hardly reflecting the “Tall” & “Victorious” expectations of his Chinese name.
He leads a deflated outlook on life, lamenting the misnomer of his name and character.
But when tragedy occurred to his family, and as floods devastated his home and neighbourhood, this young man lived up to his good-nature.
His mum then tells him, that there was a reason behind “Kao Sheng”, and that he had every reason to be proud of who he was.
