The tearjerking Thai commercial was recognized and described as touching and inspiring, as reported too by the NY Daily News. It begins with a young boy caught stealing from a pharmacy telling the owner that he did it to help his sick mum. Then comes a café owner who pays for the goods the boy took and even offered the kid some food from his own restaurant business.
After 30 years, the café owner was shown collapsing after helping a needy man and his daughter faces a huge bill of $24,000. The daughter decided to sell their house only to wake up to a medical bill that has been paid already. A note that came with it says "all expenses have been paid 30 years ago, with three packs of painkillers and a bag of veggie soup."
It later revealed that the doctor who helped them was the boy the sick man helped years ago when caught robbing medicine. The video comes up with a tag line at the end: "Giving is the best communication."
