Every Brilliant Thing

Date: 4 Feb 2019

A seven year old comes home from school to learn that Mum is in the hospital.

Dad says “she’s done something stupid.” The child begins to create a list for Mum. A list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.

Twenty years and thousands of entries later, what began as a naïve attempt to make Mum happy becomes an epic chronicle of life’s little wonders. A tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside all of us and the capacity to find delight in the everyday.

Steve Rodgers stars.
