Synopsis

Most of his classmates think the new kid at school is kind of weird – he’s in a wheelchair and he can’t speak or move his hands and legs. But the way Maria sees it, just because you can’t kick a ball doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to play soccer. And you certainly don’t have to talk to have fun dressed up like a pirate! Gentle and compassionate, ‘Strings’ celebrates the inspiring power of the imagination.
