Fifteen-year-old Leo is best friends with Giovana. Tired of his parents’ overprotective attitude, Leo, who is blind, applies to go on a school exchange abroad. When Gabriel, a new student, arrives at the school, Leo reassesses his plans. Yet as Leo becomes aware of his feelings for Gabriel, he finds he must also deal with Giovana’s jealousy. This is a sweet and charming coming-of-age drama, a film of fierce attractions, shy games of hide-and-seek, and timid encounters in the name of first love.
