A filmmaker loses her sight -- and shares her journey to regain her voice and her art

In a moving first-person documentary, a Chilean-born filmmaker now living in Canada confronts her impending blindness. Chronicling her struggles and her return home to Chile, she reunites with family and befriends a group of street vendors who teach her how to be blind.
