What is gained and what is sacrificed through the act of creation and a devotion to your life’s work?

A man named Agustin from Siguatepeque, Honduras shows his passion for creation as he custom designs a crude helicopter from trash. A body ravaged by polio from childhood has left him unable to walk and he’s spent most of his life in near poverty working as a shoemaker.

The short documentary by Tyler BastianTrevor Hill and Tim Skousen is a profound reminder of the importance of chasing dreams. Whether you’re creating a business, a product or a story for generations to come – listen to your heart.

Perhaps dreams of flying allowed this man to work on his ultimate creation. The beauty in this sad story is his ability to see beyond his physical shortcomings and his neighbor’s mockery to the realization of his dream – no matter how long long it takes.
