Prepare for an eye-opening look at a truly barrier-free theater troupe in Hong Kong. Carrying a message of inclusivity, the troupe welcomes aspiring performers with disabilities – including the blind and the deaf - to perform alongside able-bodied actors. Capturing a year in the life of the troupe, this documentary reveals the long and arduous process required to guide the performers from basic drama training to the stage. The actors, many of them non-professionals, are often challenged to break free of both their mental and physical barriers on the stage and in real life - a process that can be emotionally taxing.
