Short Film Profile

A Boy's Prayer

Dicky is a super sportsfan who daydreams about being a sports superstar, when in reality he’s only a teenage loser. His peers mock him for being a “Dr. sports” because he only talks about sports instead of actually playing them. At home, he faces the endless fights between his poet father and insurance saleswoman mother. One night, Dicky was sent to take out the garbage. Dicky dumped the garbage into the garbage truck as the melody of “A Maiden’s Prayer” was playing in the air. (In Taiwan, garbage trucks play The Maiden’s Prayer to let residents know its presence.) He was then called back by one of the cleaners because he did not do the recycles properly. Dicky felt like he saw the angel of his life when the female cleaner took off her gauze mask, and his life was about to change.
