Documentary film "Arvik" is about a man who survived a car accident. He was left disfigured and his life has been destroyed. But his spirit is not deformed. He has a loving heart and longs to fall in love and get married.
This is a story about forgiveness and compassion. The main character forgave the driver who fell asleep at the wheel and cause the terrible accident, even though nothing happened to the driver. Also this film is about dealing with the pressures of society.
This is meant to be an educational film to help other people think about their lives and how their lives could change at any moment. It teaches people to be more responsible for their own lives and the lives of others.
Many accidents happen these days because people are talking on their cell phones while driving without regard to anyone else's safety. People who drink, do drugs and drive have a general disrespect and disregard for other people. They are causing the downfall of our society. I hope "Arvik" will help make people aware of the consequences of their actions.
