“Francisco de Assis – A Life Lesson” conveys the story of Francisco de Assis Domingos, who becomes blind at age 25, after being hit with lead pellets from a shotgun accidentally fired by a friend. Francisco learns how to deal with visual impairment, but unlike other blind people, he becomes a masseur, a bocce champion, a radio presenter, a country music singer and composer and a motivational speaker. He gives up his disability insurance to keep working and supporting his family. More than an example of overcoming, “Francisco de Assis – A Life Lesson” is primarily a story about love and forgiveness.
