Prayer Vancouver Version
Drama by Suzette Laqua Associate Producer The "Prayer" project is the story of young people living with ambition in major cities around the world. All stories are similar, and each country's artists(filmmakers) and language, each story taking place in a beautiful place in each city, only have slightly different endings. Through this "prayer" pieces, we wanted to talk about hope. When we fail with high expectations, we often become deeply discouraged and even give up on our dreams. However, the young people in this work do not give up and pray. It is to have hope again and choose the next opportunity. It is prayer that plays the role of a medium to obtain such power.
