The documentary follows the different team members that took part in the dream realization, and shows that what first was an ambitious idea, and nothing but a sick child’s dream, actually became an international attraction supported by thousands of strangers. Indeed, Miles’ story happened to resonate for many people, unleashing an insane media coverage: tweets, emails, phone calls, interviews, press articles, and so on. Batkid Begins achieves in relaying the momentum of solidarity the organizers experienced: as soon as the story got out, they became overwhelmed by messages of support, and people asking “what can I do?”
Batkid Begins explores -- voluntary or not -- the notion that what you give out of solidarity is actually returned to you in well-being; that helping others is actually helping yourself. The documentary leaves you with a strong sensation that nothing’s impossible; especially with the technology now surrounding us: a simple idea can go viral, and if people care, they will support you.
