Compassion, Innocence, Strength, Hope and Life itself are the beautiful qualities that Aileen, someone who had been a long time pessimist discovered in them.
The movie does not only give those who are socially invisible a voice, but serves as a reminder to focus on the positive as an advantage to recreate a beautiful world, rather than to focus on negativity that could create more problems in our reality.
