Brief Explanation

In this 'documercial' film for Astro, Mohd Adli decides to make up for past mistakes and keep his promises to his autistic son, Luqman. The film is centered around earning Luqman's forgiveness. It has been re-enacted by Mohd Adli and Luqman themselves.

Shooting with a family with Autism child was deeply personal and has to relive their darker moments. Luqman is lower functioning on the autistic spectrum, and we had to find a 5 year old and a 12 year old child to be the younger version of Luqman - that would be able to behave the way Luqman. We casted all sorts of children, and even a few children who were autistic too. We interviewed occupational therapist to understand autistic behaviour and learned that autism is different for every person and so we had learn more about luqman's personal challenges and behaviour. After casting the boys who could understand the purpose of recreating the story, they studied footage of Luqman and spent time with Luqman to understand his mannerisms. We also tried many times to try to push for authentic performances and to re-create memories.
