Resilience

After the fatal mistake by a doctor on Meia Lua, who lives in a shanty town in Brazil, he become paralyzed in both legs. This new reality is hard for Meia Lua to come to terms with and he struggles with strong feelings of shame and low self-esteem. With time, he realizes that what really paralyzes him is his attitude – and the wheelchair. Through hard training, he develops his own unique way to get around in and he decides furthermore to be champion in capoeira . But there exists a thing Meia Lua still has to struggle for – to provide a home for his son.
