Body And Soul

Boldy and Soul

Victoria, Mariana and Vasco are three young Mozambicans with physical disabilities, living in the suburbs of Maputo, the country’s capital. This moving, empowering film shows how they are able to overcome ignorance, prejudice and a lack of facilities for the handicapped, to find self-acceptance and make a success of their lives.
