Leonardo is a visually impaired teenager struggling to break free from his well-meaning friends and family. At home, his over- protective mother won’t let him do things by himself, and at school his best friend, Giovana, attentively looks out for him, leaving no room for Leonardo to stand up for himself. Wanting to experience the world for himself he considers going on an exchange programme, hoping to start afresh. However, when new student Gabriel arrives in town, new feelings blossom and Leonardo begins to question his plans. Expanding his 2010 short to feature length, director Daniel Ribeiro has fashioned a magnificent, warm and funny film about friendship, the desire for independence and the longing for first love. - GAZE LGBT Film Festival 2014
