He couldn’t even feed himself, but he wouldn’t let go of his dreams.
Every child wants a toy on their birthday, but Atee has a different wish – to learn the piano.
When his parents finally present him with a one, he promises to practise hard. But reality hits harder, and his illness deteriorates.
The doctors said he would gradually become blind.
His eyesight worsens and he eventually enrols into a school for the blind. He even has to re-learn how to climb a flight of stairs.
That didn’t stop him or his parents. They didn’t let go.
He might never be Mozart, but it’s a sure start towards defying the impossible.
Take baby steps. Never let your dreams die.
‘Echo’ by Singaporean filmmaker Lincoln Chia was inspired by the musical contributions of the King of Thailand Bhumibol Adulyadej.
