Inspired by the childhood of legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Frida Libre is an uplifting story that explores the meaning of friendship, bravery, and transformation. Alex may seem like a quiet, shy boy, but he secretly holds big ideas inside his head. He wants to be a luchador (wrestler) and defeat bad guys in the ring. His life changes when he meets brave and colorful Frida, an unusual girl who dreams of being a doctor so she can help people. Forced to do a science project on butterflies and metamorphosis, the pair discovers how true friendship can help you overcome fear and transform your dreams into reality.
