Hope is something that keeps a man going in life, like a light at the end of a tunnel. The film also talks about this very aspiration of not giving up or feeling disheartened by the lows in one’s life. ‘Everything is Possible’ is a motivational short story of a shepherd and his son who get lost in a vast desert with absolutely no sign of life anywhere close to them. Their journey of reaching the ultimate destination and expecting for a better end is what drives the story and inspires the audience to never give up.

The background of this film is set in 1972 Turkmenistan, a country in Central Asia which is also said to be on the way of the Great Silk Road. This is suggestive of the fact that a lot of travelers had passed this vast stretch of desert which might have seemed like an unending area. In the film, it is this place where the young boy and his shepherd father lose their way searching for their camels, walking out of breath and longing for water. The entire situation seems dull and the father very soon decides to give up because he believes that there is no hope for them to survive. This very moment, his young, yet optimistic son reminds him of his own teaching which makes the shepherd choose ‘hope’ and believe in miracles. What happens next and whether the father and son reach their final destination is for you to see and explore, yet this valuable piece of advice given by such a young child is sure to change a lot in the story as well as ‘hopefully’ the audience’s perspective of looking at life.

The cinematography and background score of this film are praiseworthy as they make the performers’ struggle look so convincing that the viewer’s would definitely sympathize with these characters and create an instant connect. Moreover, the minimalistic dialogue and apparent silence of the story talks volumes about the main idea and keeps you engaged to know, what next? “Trusting oneself where there is no possibility and having self-confidence is the key of all possibilities’’, is the main message that the director tries to put across through this short story. The work of the entire team has surely achieved their aim of motivating and inspiring their audience in a mere span of four minutes.

Creating a concept that gives hope to its viewers especially at a time when the entire world has seemingly lost hope on getting back to their ‘normal’ lives because of the pandemic is definitely a great choice. Considering the present context and applying the film’s story to it brings in a lot of light and positivity in a dull and gloomy environment. The story motivates you to get up and do better, ignoring the negativity and starting over with an optimistic outlook, which may seem far-fetched at once, but will definitely lead to doing something productive at the end.

The director Myratgeldi Mollayev puts forward the narrative through a third person’s perspective with a strong voiceover in the background. His way of highlighting the difficulties and challenges faced while travelling in a desert is quite interesting and it adds on to the thrill of the story. It also seems a little supernatural like when the concept of miracles is introduced leaving the characters’ stunned by nature and its doings. The elements of fear, adventure and intense motivation to achieve something are the highlights of this film. A seemingly simple character of a young boy and a shepherd explicitly showcasing these complex emotions so well throughout the film bring out the essence of it correctly.

The film in itself isn’t extraordinary as such, yet it has the ability to motivate and inspire you to do something better and that is what truly matters. It is a short and sweet watch for the much-required boost of energy in your monotonous routine.
