The sound of dreams

Aug 2, 2016

Mario (6) dreams of becoming a radio personality at an early age because he is

fascinated with listening to AM radio - the only means of entertainment they have in

Lebak, Sultan Kudarat. However, fate tests his courage to pursue this dream when he is

diagnosed with leukemia at six years old. He is crushed, but with the help of his mother

Erlinda who gives him all the necessary support that he can get, he recovers from his

illness and manages to become a DJ at 20 years old. Mario’s world is turned upside

down for one more time when his health fails him because of the hard work he has been

putting at the radio station. He gets up at 2 in the morning for his 4 AM program a

couple days a week and commutes for almost two hours, resulted to his white blood cell

count to drop bigtime. Worried for the life of his son, Erlinda forces Mario to stop tiring

himself from working while he is finishing his studies. Mario obeys his mother but is

gutted because he has to abandon his life-long dream. But in his last year in college,

Mario finds an opportunity to live his dream without sacrificing his health when he

applies for a DJ job which slot is in the evening. Concealing this from Erlinda, Mario

pursues the sound of his dream while studying and finishes college without having any

health complications. In the end, Mario goes on to have a successful career in radio and

is still without a trace of sickness at present.
