When they built a bridge to connect their little island to the mainland, this boy’s entire life changed. But do all the tragedies in his life end his story, or boost him up for a new beginning?

This film, titled The Moped Diaries (perhaps a play on The Motorcycle Diaries) , is brilliantly written, well shot and masterfully edited. The style might remind you of any Wes Anderson film, or the story might seem Forrest Gump-ish in parts.

The maker of this film made this after going through a bad break up. While most of us might fall prey to some downward spiral fueled with alcohol, drugs and repetitive moments of depression, this filmmaker shows that you can also choose to own your loss and turn it into something beautiful.
