Four small portraits of people with disability. Why is life worth living?
LOOKING THROUGH THE INSIDE
Débora is six years old and blind since her birth. She lives in the Alentejo, and doesn’t have access to a specific education for blind people. She lives in her own world and spends her days with music and inventing fantastic stories.
FRAGMENTS OF A SLOW TIME
Lucas, Chico and Vitor are tetraplegics and live in an institution of the Red Cross in Lisbon, specialized in deep motor deficiency. The film shows the handicaps to live with a completely paralysed body, without family or profession.
AT THE EDGE OF LIMITS
Simone lives nearby Viseu, and has cerebral paralysis: she cannot walk, moves one hand with difficulty and speaks in a hardly perceivable way. She is doing now a special training at the municipal library, but in the future will she ever be able to keep a job, to live independently, to succeed in love?
We follow José Alvaro Figueiredo, a deaf magician during the preparation of one of his shows. The film portrays a man with an extraordinary skill to communicate with people He has created a proper form of expression in which deafness is not a limitation but an enrichment.
