Scientific evidence states that it is impossible for the bumblebee to fly yet he doesn’t know that and he flies anyway!
An excerpt from the Book “Fly Like a Bumblebee” by R.W. Klamm: “No one knew I could hardly see until I was eight years old, not even me! Then my second grade teacher caught me cheating on flash cards. Even eyeglasses, with lenses thick as Coke bottle bottoms, still left me legally blind. Friends ran off and I could not see to follow. My father was chronically angry. Mother turned out not to be the saint I imagined. Only magic and an enduring optimism saved me from a desperately twisted sense of identity and suicide.”
R.W. Klamm was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas and still resides there today. He reveals in his book the struggles of a himself as a nearly blind young man who finds solace in magic and the power to make himself a success.
Our movie will show the journey he embarked upon and the magic he found.
