The film’s director, Martinson, explains, “As an entrepreneur and a person with disability, telling this story was dear to my heart. So, I hope this film inspires, changes mindsets and encourages others with similar challenges…”
“…this documentary film was initially meant to tell my story as a young entrepreneur with disability in Ghana. But soon, I realized there were probably more like myself (persons with disabilities) who are going against all the odds society throws at them, and despite their challenges, are contributing to the economic growth of the country.”
Of all the potential sponsors Martinson contacted, only ZHIYUN replied to his calls for assistance on this exciting project. Martinson learned about ZHIYUN through YouTube, and it was the only company to contact him because ZHIYUN believes every creative passion can be enhanced with technological innovations.

ZHIYUN extends its congratulations to the filmmaker on his continued success.
