About the Work

To celebrate 25 years in Spain, Ronald McDonald Children’s Foundation has launched the audiovisual piece “Captain Olson.” This short, heartwarming film tells the story of two brothers called Pedro and Nacho, aged 11 and 7, who live in a small town. One day they receive some walkie talkies as a gift. These come to play a central role in their games and strengthen the bond between them even further. However, the story is suddenly cut short when Nacho has to leave his town and his brother to receive medical treatment in the city. The story highlights the importance of family closeness when it comes to treating children. That’s why the theme of the campaign is “Family is the best medicine.”
