Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly—Frida Kahlo
Against the backdrop of the Mexican Revolution, young Mijita Fridita, growing up in her family’s blue house in Coyoacan is diagnosed with polio. Bedridden, Fridita escapes into the world of her imagination, meets another girl that looks just like her, and together they journey to the center of the world for a fiesta with all the characters of her imaginings. Back in the real world, her peers taunt her for being different, but her father Guillermo encourages her, and awakens her interest in art with his love of photography. Strong and resilient, Fridita learns to overcome hardships and stay true to herself in order to become the legendary artist that continues to inspire.
