This film was inspired by the true story a young Burmese refugee who overcomes his challenges and fears with the help of a dedicated mentor who invests the time and energy into helping him. In turn, he pays it forward by reaching out and helping somebody else as well.

Lost for Words was produced to support the Jeremy Lin Foundation (@jlinfoundation) and PAIR Houston (@pairhouston), an organization that works with refugee youth and the winner of last year’s Making A Difference campaign.
