Concise, Dramatic, Emotional, Powerful, Engaging, and Awe-inspiring short Documentary
The content and quality of cinematography in this brief film help to provide the viewer with the most accurate perspective of it's protagonist. The film by being brief chooses to focus on Zion's heroic-like figure. Though he was born with no tissue beneath his abdomen, and he likely has undergone numerous surgeries, and so many other things that could fill this documentary with content, the producer chose to focus on the successes and the reality of who this man is. Zion is not defined by his body, his situation, or what he can do, but it seems clear that he defines himself by what God sees in him. This story is not a religious one per se, but it has a clear message of strength that you just don't see the average human will. Zion is a champion, and he is fearfully and wonderfully made. Please don't allow the misguided ratings to dissuade you from being gifted by the 11 minutes of this film.
