    Liked this short film. Was watching it intently and reminded me of my childhood when I was like that. Not exactly a super hero but some one who could not breath, could not play, got irritated when some one talked to me...... All that disappeared as I grew up (I don't know how) Must appreciate the sound quality here. First of the sound of the child coughing sounds so genuine. Exactly like a child having breathing problem. The music throughout the movie was good and effective. Good work Jonathan.

    My asthmatic 4-year old son LOVES this and wants to watch it whenever he has to stay home from school coughing and wheezing.
