Synopsis: Singapore’s only power boat racer in recent years, met with a damaging accident during a race but is determined not to let this unfortunate race be his last.
A journey in everything that we do, consists of perseverance, goals to achieve and obstacles that might even put an early end to our course. Many of us would choose the easy way out and move on with our lives, but some of us would do whatever it takes to complete the journey that we started. This short documentary film, is a true life narrative of a dear friend of mine Laurence Wong Seong. Who got into a severe crash accident, while representing Team Singapore in a F1 powerboat race. For a period of his life, after encountering a life threatening accident and not finishing the race. He lived with both a long term injury and a mental block due to the possibility of not having the chance to ever race again. But he decided to free himself from all the pain as well as dilemmas and when on to race to complete his life’s pilgrimage.
