    An Unforgettable True Story!
    My sister and I saw this most inspiring "true story" movie one week ago. We loved it. It is so wonderful. It is inspiring. It will help blind/partially blind people to have some hope, and to look into Eye Surgeons who perform this type of surgery or, at least, help them in some way. (I have an adult friend who has had cornea damage since being a little girl, and I am going to tell her about this Eye Surgeon.) The acting was SUPERB from the young to the adult actors. It was "jam packed" with movement throughout the entire movie. It never stood still. When it was over, we just looked at each other and said "oh my goodness". We were dumbfounded by how fabulous it was and how fabulously it was presented. My personal message to those few reviews that I just read--It is sad that you could not appreciate the impact this true story will have in our world. God Bless Angel Studios for their Courage! We love ALL their movies!!!!! Mar and Mag.

    the moving true story of Dr Wang from his childhood to giving sight to the blind
    Ming Wang was born in China before the cultural revolution. When the revolution came, he had to leave school for years and thought his dream of becoming a doctor were lost. During this time, he and his family had to ensure the brutality of the communist regime. However, years later he had the chance to enter a college of he could do well enough on a national exam. He was able to score high enough to enter college by studying 5 years of missed schooling in the 3 months before the exam. His family collected all their money to send him to MIT and then medical school. He became an eye surgeon and developed a procedure that could restore sight to the blind.

    Realistic depiction of the upheaval of the Chinese cultural revolution and provided a good portrayal of the obstacles he had to overcome to go from a Chinese village to the top of the medical profession in the US.
