BREAKTHROUGH

BREAKTHROUGH. A must-see movie. The story is inspiring, touching and very heart-warming and left a great impact on me.

Breakthrough is about a mother's love for her adopted son John. John falls and is trapped under frozen water for 15 minutes. He is rushed to the hospital, fighting for his life. When all hope is lost and everyone starts to give up, the mother refuses to give up, and her strong belief encourages everyone around her to keep praying for John's survival, and guess what?! A MIRACLE really occurs when John's heartbeat suddenly comes back, astonishing even the doctors.

Take away lesson from the movie: we may discover that faith and love will build a mountain of hope, sometimes even  miracles. All we need is to keep strong and pray, for our Lord is listening to us.

1 Litre no Namida

This film is based on true story taken from Aya Kito’s diaries. This touching story takes place in Japan. Aya’s a 15-year-old who has a rare condition known as ‘spinocerebellar ataxia’ or ‘spinocerebellar degeneration.’ Her illness takes away her motor function and she loses the  ability to control her body movements and dies at the age of 25 after fighting with the disease for so long.
