    Andrea and Salsabila, nicknamed Dea and Salsa, are childhood friends from Indonesia. Both have been blind since birth. At five years old, Dea moved with her family to the United States, while Salsa remained in Jakarta. Now in the US, Dea attends a school for visually impaired students. In Indonesia, Salsa lives in a dormitory far from her parents so she can attend one of the few “inclusive schools” that accept visually impaired students. With graduation from high school around the corner, Dea and Salsa support each other as they prepare for adulthood in two very different worlds. –
