Thursday Me Time: It’s All About Caine

Caine Monroy is 9 year old boy from East LA, who has built a selection of well-known arcade games out of cardboard boxes. He operates out of his father’s autoparts business and remains optimistic despite never having a single customer, until filmmaker Nirvan Mullick happened upon the store and decided to fulfil the little boy’s dream by raising awareness of his venture and organising a surprise flash mob for him. The joy in Caine’s face when he realises that a large group of people in the street are waiting to play at his arcade is pretty much the definition of heartwarming.

The thought that has gone into his creations, which includes a security system and prizes, would be impressive for an adult, but the fact all this has been achieved by a 9 year old makes it all the more extraordinary.
