Storyline

In a shantytown of Brazil, a man refuses to let his physical disability prevent him from living a full life, become the first known capoeira master with paralyzed legs and to fulfill his dream of being able to live with his son. Meia Lua was living a normal life in a shantytown as a child in Brazil until his legs became paralyzed due to a mistake made by the doctor. During this period he suffered from embarrassment, pain and the struggle of readjusting to his new life. Over time, Meia Lua came to realize what was really paralyzing him - his mind, perception of self, and the wheelchair. As a result and a lot of persistence, he develops his own way of walking, through using his arms as legs and hands as feet. Meia Lua was introduced to Busha, a man who is in a similar situation as him. Much like Meia Lua, Busha was also adamant that his physical disability would not prevent him from living a full life, taking part of any everyday situation and pursuing his passion - capoeira.
