Leonardo (Lobo) is a blind teenager, bullied by his classmates and comforted by best friend Giovana (Amorim); when Gabriel (Audi) joins the class, things get complicated. Unassuming but sweetly engaging coming-of-age drama, although the central romance isn't entirely plausible and it's a little too determined to have a happy ending.
