Six young athletes are champions in sport but above all in life, a life often filled with prejudices and stereotypes about their disability. The documentary tells the stories of Alice, Anna, Claudio, Mauro, Loris, Pasquale: they talk about themselves in front of the camera reporting their experiences on how sport helped them in overcoming their disability. In a society that runs fast and doesn’t pay attention to their needs, they live like invisible people struggling with difficulties day by day, all united by the desire to prove that they can succeed, regardless of their handicaps.
