    • Synopsis
    • Ada and Miguel are a very special Cuban couple. Miguel is blind and his wife can barely walk but by working together, they’ve found an ingenious way of dealing with their individual disabilities. Ada steers, while Miguel controls the throttle and brakes of their home-made motorcycle as they travel around the Cuban countryside, scratching a living making mattresses. He is her legs and she is his eyes. This inspiring story shows how through love and determination, even the cruellest of circumstances can be overcome.
