Despite being the host of an upbeat radio program for kids, Miguel is in a rut. Self-centered and depressed, Miguel is only focused on his own dissatisfaction with life, rather than on the lives of those around him. On the verge of losing his radio show because of recent erratic behavior, Miguel begins to spiral. But everything changes one fateful afternoon when he accepts a call on-air from a little boy with a big imagination. Mistaking the radio program’s title, The Ship, for a real ship, Gerardo, a cancer patient in a children’s hospital, implores Miguel, the “captain,” to take him on an adventure at sea. Inspired by Gerardo’s hope and innocence, Miguel sets out on a journey to make the little boy’s last wishes come true. Based on real life events, THE SHIP is a beautiful story of friendship, dedication, and redemption. (In Spanish with subtitles) — G.S.
