Será que a Manuela consegue chegar ao fim?


It’s the day of the big race, and Manuela is ready with her marvellous car. However, during the journey, a series of unexpected obstacles arise, testing her imagination and, above all, her persistence. Will Manuela manage to reach the end? Will she achieve her dream of victory or not? That’s what we’ll find out at the end of this story… Come support Manuela, there’s no one quite like her!



Although this performance is part of a trilogy, viewing the others is not required.
