The-Promise-Still-9 KRK

Parents can plan and provide, but true character is found when they try to get through rainy days with a smile on their face.

God knows they try their darndest best, even when they don’t have much to give.

In this short film, a widowed father raises his son in very humble circumstances in 1980s Singapore. He doesn’t have much, but he dedicates all he has to his son and wife: through his education, adult life, and marriage.

But the legacy he left behind was one of dedication and love.
