Batkid Begins takes audiences back to November 15th, 2013 - the day San Francisco became Gotham City and an intense outpouring of spontaneous support reverberated around the world.

I have watched this movie 4 times and the last time I made my boyfriend watch it with me. What I love about it is that it renews my hope that most people are trying to do the right thing if given motivation. I think we all become disconnected sometimes and this movie reminds the viewer how thousands of people can come together and be excited to make a sick child's dream come true. It pulled everyone out of their daily life to come together to make something positive happen. It's an inspiring movie that reminds you to recognize and appreciate the blessings in your life.

It is a very inspirational video showing how much heart people really have by coming together, in community, to fulfill a child's wish. The joy in giving a special day to one child was contagious and totally feel good. If only we can express that show of love everyday to one another.
