Young students huddle together on a bench in the glaring sun, clutching their white canes, listening for the signs that can let them put together the puzzle of their existence – they are the blind children and young adults of a world-renowned specialized Lisbon clinic. Ian, their new spatial orientation instructor, wants to leave traditional boundaries behind and help them explore their surroundings without feeling vulnerable or frightened. Through unconventional means, he aims to stimulate their curiosity and imaginations. Is the image of the world that Ian is conveying to his students real?
