Leonardo is a blind teenager searching for independence. His everyday life, the relationship with his best friend, Giovana, and the way he sees the world change completely with the arrival of Gabriel.



This movie tells a story that is often told, the story of a teenager who wants his independence and who is discovering his sexual orientation even if it is difficult to accept. On the other hand, the fact that the main character is blind brings a new dimension to this story and brings representation to something that is not often seen in media.
