“The young girl has a terminal illness, but strives to live the best life she can. In doing so, she is a beacon of hope for her friends. She shows everyone hope and tenacity,” Ms Muller said.

“She doesn’t reduce herself to pity, but shows everyone life is for living.”

Ms Muller said they hoped share with viewers to never give up.

“Hope, perseverance and resilience are the ideas behind the movie. God, family and friends make trials and tribulations lighter.

“But ultimately life is for living so get out there.”

The Fijian Made Film Awards and Fiji Airways Art competition will be held at Damodar City on July 27 and Fiji Link Dance competition will be held on July 28 at the FMF Gymnasium.
