Based on a true story of tenacity, a seven-year-old boy struggles to make sense of words on the page. But when Mike is diagnosed with dyslexia and the teachers continue to fail him, his mother takes matters into her own hands to help her son fulfil his true potential. An Official Selection at the Oscar-qualifying LA Shorts International Film Festival 2020, this award-winning film was made to create awareness of children with dyslexia as they are not only being failed, but they are also being damaged. People assume dyslexia is being addressed but in reality, it isn't. COMMENT below your review of the film, share your experiences and SUBSCRIBE.
