Victoria, Mariana and Vasco are three young Mozambicans with physical disabilities, living in the townships of Maputo, Mozambique’s capital city. Victoria transmits the self-esteem she received from her education to other physically disabled women by organizing a fashion show; Mariana uses her social energy to create helpful friendships and overcome urban architectonical barriers and Vasco does business, repairing shoes in the informal sector. The film explores how they look at themselves and others and raises universal questions about how to find one’s place in society.
