The fictional part of the story—the reading and literature side—is a topic that I’ve been intrigued with for years, the notion that common themes tend to repeat over and over again in classical literature (such as the Cinderella story). When Sang Ly’s story came along (via the documentary), it felt like the perfect opportunity to weave into the themes of reading and literature that I’d been studying for years. All said, thank you for your kind words. They are sincerely appreciated. (less)

This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)

We don’t know for sure what was wrong with the child (speaking of the real Sang Ly and her son). What we do know is that Sang Ly had taken him to several doctors—western doctors who couldn’t help—and yet the old Cambodian healer cured the boy with a See Full Answer
Camron Wright answered Karen's question: Camron Wright
Thanks for the question. In Khmer, it would be typical for them to shorten names, particularly English names they weren’t accustomed to pronouncing, so it was really just to ring more true to the Cambodian culture.

I hope this answers your question.

“Love Forever

If I were the trees ...
I would turn my leaves to gold and scatter them toward the sky so they would circle about your head and fall in piles at your feet...
so you might know wonder.

If I were the mountains ...
I would crumble down and lift you up so you could see all of my secret places, where the rivers flow and the animals run wild ...
so you might know freedom.

If I were the ocean ...
I would raise you onto my gentle waves and carry you across the seas to swim with the whales and the dolphins in the moonlit waters,
so you might know peace.

If I were the stars ...
I would sparkle like never before and fall from the sky as gentle rain,
so that you would always look towards heaven and know that you can reach the stars.

If I were the moon ...
I would scoop you up and sail you through the sky and show you the Earth below in all its wonder and beauty,
so you might know that all the Earth is at your command.

If I were the sun ...
I would warm and glow like never before and light the sky with orange and pink,
so you would gaze upward and always know the glory of heaven.

But I am me ...
and since I am the one who loves you, I will wrap you in my arms and kiss you and love you with all of my heart,
and this I will do until ...
the mountains crumble down ...
and the oceans dry up ...
and the stars fall from the sky ...
and the sun and moon burn out ...

And that is forever.”
Camron Wright, The Rent Collector

“Words provide a voice to our deepest feelings. I tell you, words have started and stopped wars. Words have built and lost fortunes. Words have saved and taken lives. Words have won and lost great kingdoms. Even Buddha said, 'Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care, for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.”
