Synopsis

This film tells the true story of Gabriela Brimmer, whose cerebral palsy left her completely paralyzed from birth. At first thought to be comatose by her doctors, with the help of her compassionate maid, Florencia, Brimmer learns to use her one functional limb -- her left foot -- to communicate. From there begins an emotional and physical journey towards self-actualization that ultimately defines Brimmer as a writer, an artist and an activist.
