Pepper (Little Boy)

“If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move,” – Matthew 17:20. This is the bible verse to which the main character, Pepper from the movie Little Boy grasps and set on his heart to bring his dad back.

I don’t know if this movie wants to improve the faith of its viewers but it did for me. The movie concentrates on the “ancient list” that Pepper needs to complete to bring his dad back from war. Well, that’s how it appears to the little boy but it is not how the priest explained it to him. The priest is saying that it’ll be up to God to decide on the outcome of list. The tasks are on the image below

plus a personal mission which is to befriend a Japanese man who is considered enemy of United States in the war.

So here’s the glitch but a beautiful one; one of the tasks is to bury the dead. Unfortunately, it was his dad who died in the war and he buried to complete the list. What’s the sense of completing the list if it is his father who needs to die to complete it? But the movie ends with Pepper being able to meet his dad again.

Technically, Pepper wasn’t able to complete the list because the task to bury the dead was voided due to a mistake on his father’s death. (One of the movies’ twists)

In reality, I see this glitch as how God really works in us. We may not be able to complete a certain task He wants us to do but He’s more than willing to give us blessings. We may not be able to meet his standards but He’s there to answer our prayers, to guide us and to love us.
