Filmmaker Jonathan Ng turns the notion of otherness on its head in his semi-autobiographical animated short about young, whimsical, asthmatic Winston. His asthma prevents him from participating in everyday activities such as gym and recess with the rest of his classmates. To cope, he spends most of his time indoors drawing and discovers a fantasy world where his medical burdens become his method of flight. Then one rainy day, Winston and all his classmates become trapped inside. Winston charms and dazzles his peers and lets them all in on his special talent. He learns that his imagination has the power to bridge gaps, transform and empower.
The 7 minute short is directed by Jonathan Ng.
