Make visible to girls and boys who present specific educational support difficulties, to their families and to the teachers who work to ensure that they are happy and integrated into society.

The short stars Amir Brahmi, an 8-year-old boy with autism who studies at Veles e Vents school. The film shows, through the life of this child, the difficulties faced, both educationally and socially, by students with specific educational support needs.
“If we want educational inclusion, we also need social inclusion. This is one of the reasons why we wanted to make this short film from the CEIP Veles e Vents, to publicize the difficulties that it entails, both at an educational level and for families, and the importance of having help in education so that they can be integrated”, highlighted Nuria Lázaro, who directs the short and signs the script with her partner Alba Jiménez.
