My Angel My Hero is a 2011 short film. It is directed by Faizan Sheikh and an Hollywood veteran actor Dan Shor. The film stars Faizan Sheikh, Kimberly Dipersia and Dakim Wills. This stylish, dark drama with sacrifices of our time surprises us with its characters and the strength to survive. The film echoes the sound of music and dance to heal Parkinson's disease, a disease caused by the deterioration of brain cells leading to tremors of the muscles in the body.


The film tells the story of a young boy Billy (Dakim Wills), who is suffering from Parkinson's disease and dances in New York City subway and streets. He eventually finds an inspiration by meeting a former Investment Banker, Da (Faizan Sheikh) and together they discover the advantages of dance towards Parkinson's disease.
