He didn’t have a care in the world but he cared for the world around him.
He was a gift to everyone.
Nino lived on the streets. He didn’t have much – a ready smile, a simple mind, and a sincere heart.
Yet, he wanted to bless others, believing that it was his mission as he was christened so – Santo Nino, the “Holy Child”.
A piece of bread, a handful of coins — they were thrusted into his hands.
He took them and gave them away, again.
When he saw someone in being robbed, again, he gave his all.
He couldn’t ask for a better life — a life without regrets.
‘Niño’ was nominated in six categories at the Sinulog Short Film Festival in the Philippines.
