XXX. 2015 Black International Cinema Berlin

In the riverside neighborhood of Oporto, all the children prove their courage by jumping from the stunning bridge Luis I into the Duero river. Leo has never done it before. He is different, but he is getting tired of everyone thinking he is a coward.

Im Uferviertel von Porto beweisen die Kinder ihren Mut durch einen Sprung von der beeindruckenden Brücke Luis I in den Fluss Duero. Leo hat das noch nie gemacht. Er ist anders, aber er ist es leid, dass jeder denkt, er sei ein Feigling.
