This documentary follows Peipei in her mission of learning and overcoming the rigidity of the school system.


Fausto Also


Fausto, a young autistic man, has just finished high school and decides to apply to the public university of Argentina to have a bachelor's degree. His decision puts a great challenge on the educational community and is also an issue that his family treats with delicacy.
