Goodbye my boy. Forgive me that I was sometimes angry because of what fate had brought me, for destiny could not have been better for me.
Rest my life, surgery, therapy, the pain is over … If the kisses healed, you would be the healthiest child in the world. Pedro Solis Garcia.
This is how his own father, Pedro Solis, reports the death of Nicholas at the age of 16, the son who inspired “Strings“, An animated short film that inspired him to life and received, in addition to countless awards, and Goya in 2014.
The documentary, which moved millions of people, managed to give visibility to the social barriers of people and especially children with disabilities.
In an interview with Mediaset, Pedro Solis, the father and producer of the short film, spoke about the reason why “Cuerdas” was born:
It is clear that “Kuerdas” and Nika, as he was affectionately called in the family, are part of our lives and the changes they have caused in informing the public about people with disabilities.
Rest in peace, Nick.
