ocean heaven…

what will you do?
if you a father of a special need child?
and your wife has pass away many years ago?
on top of that doctor said you are dying?

Mr. Wang was only a lonely and poor guy
living in a small rented house
works as a mechanic in a “ocean park”
brought his son to work every day.

Dafu grew up to be a good swimmer
enjoy swim with sea creatures everyday
meet a clown girl who play juggling
He and Ling ling learn how to make friendship

Dafu live happy go lucky in his own world
don’t understand his father pain and struggles
when the clown girl leave to another place
Dafu wait her call by the phone booth

Mr. Wong work very hard to train his son
how to cook egg for himself
how to take a bus on his own
to understand the value of money

He didn’t have much sleep at night
sewing the tag on his son clothes
struggling with the pain of his sickness
wondering about his son future

try to find a place for his son
in a special need boarding school
don’t have the time for romance
even though he has crushed on someone

the lady is nice and quite pretty
she love Dafu and his father too
Before leave he gave her money and photo
she return the money but took his photo.

one more thing he wants to do
Swim with Dafu as a sea turtle
leaving his love and sense of presence
when he finally really have to go.
