I want to make this film because it will give me a mirror to reflect the reality facing Indonesians – having to fight to achieve our dream, with hard work and struggle. This film aims to reveal if you have desire or aspiration, you must take a risk and hard work for its realization and to make it happen. This film portrays the economic problems and limited access to health for a poor people in Indonesia. Our main character, Satria, cannot pay hospital fees, and he therefore cannot bring his son for a much needed operation. He has to face the reality that he cannot earn enough to cover the basic needs his family. His dreams to be a Real Champion, must now made concrete. He has to face realty full on.
