Victor Branco, 22, started realising he was losing his eyesight in his sleep. His dreams lost colours, things were turning into shades of light and dark, the images started to be blurred. He has left the island of São Miguel, where all the paths were familiar, to come to a school in the unknown city of Lisbon where he’s learning to live his life as a blind young man. In this new world computers and mobile phones have voices and food plates are like the face of a clock.
