The Fernanda Bianchini Ballet Association for the Blind in São Paulo is the sole ballet school in the world for the visually impaired. The film tells the story of two youngsters in the program: Geyza, who lost her vision at the age of nine but continues to pursue her dream to become a ballerina, and Thalia, her teenage protegée, who has multiple aspirations and a feisty personality. Both are without a trace of self-pity. For each, ballet is an important creative outlet and a means of becoming a more powerful self. Watching them confront their daily challenges proves to be a deeply emotional experience.
