This is a beautifully written and filmed documentary about the lengths and sacrifices some children and their families carry on a daily basis in order for them to get a better life and education. I can't imagine anyone watching this moving and inspiring story of 4 groups of children and their daily struggles just to get to school. Imagine walking 2 hours everyday to get to school and then having to make the return trip home, and in many cases being responsible for your younger sibling. These four nationals from 'developing countries' travel across mountainous ranges, dried waterholes, though Elephant savannah and under the scorching sun. I was particularly moved by how all the children featured are happy, optimistic and driven to just do something many take for granted in the western world. One of the best documentaries out there.
