“A boy who is believed to bring bad luck leads his family (and a couple of ragged misfits) through Laos to find a new home. After a calamity-filled journey through a land scarred by war, the boy builds a giant rocket to prove he’s not cursed and to enter the most lucrative but dangerous competition of the year: a rocket festival.”
Reality Bites. Poverty. War. Faith.
The movie serves us to understand simply that no matter what brings out adversity in our life, we must always have HOPE to prove and redeem our-self, to fight the poverty in the name for your family.
A lovely, resonant, natural, deeply movie.
