Paper Flowers by Asit Vyas

Paper Flowers tells a powerful true story about a boy named Shahlin whose promising young life took a sudden turn after being diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of cancer. With only a limited amount of time to live his fullest, Shahlin learns what it means to live life to its fullest and finds his life’s purpose that he’s been searching for all along. This story is based on the real life is Shahlin, who happens to be a relative of the writer, Asit. Shahlins story gained steam on social media when he wrote a letter towards the end of his life titled, “Thank you, Cancer” that went viral because of its inspirational messaging. It was through tragedy that Shahlins life saw true meaning, and we’re honored to champion his legacy. Asit is now in discussions with Producers who are eager to raise financing and help this project get made.
