After the two tragic flight incidents suffered by Malaysia Airlines (MAS), the national charter has released a Chinese New Year short film as a tribute to the victims of MH370 and MH17.

Similar to last year’s short film by MAS for Malaysian Independence Day titled “TERBANG”, the Chinese New Year short film entitled “BLESSINGS, A Malaysian story” was also directed and written by Linus Chung and Mohd Hisham Salleh.

The video was released yesterday on MAS’ YouTube channel and has so far garnered 6,849 views.

The film follows Mary Anne played by Ong See Mui who is a former MAS flight attendant and now works for her son, a workaholic dentist. Mary tries to open up her son’s heart and help him realise that there are blessings hidden even with the smallest things.

The short film conveys that no matter what hardships we go through or suffer, we should appreciate what we have now and keep moving forward.

The film stars Mike Chuah Bee Seong as the dentist and a number of renowned local stars such as Adibah Noor, Fauziah Nawi, Beto Kusyairy, Joseph Germani and Eewen Teoh.

Malaysian singer-songwriter, Lilly sings the original soundtrack for the short film titled “SKY” which is also the singer’s debut single.
