Brazilian filmmaker Daniel Gonçalves shares his journey to seek a diagnosis for his disability in this honest, often humorous documentary.

Gonçalves’s physical disability may seem obvious, but doctors have so far failed to find a diagnosis. He did not learn to walk until the age of six, and today he still asks ‘why?’ Through a series of home videos, Daniel shares fragments of his life, including the love and support of his family, as he undergoes diagnostic testing and continues challenging himself to achieve his aspirations. He shares his utter frustration as he attempts to make an omelette, and the triumph of successful indoor rock climbing. Gonçalves’s also questions the privilege of his social position: what if he wasn’t a white, heterosexual male from one of Rio de Janeiro’s wealthiest neighbourhoods?
