This touching, globe-trotting documentary travels from Kenya to Patagonia, Morocco and India to show the incredible physical obstacles that some children must face every day simply to get to the classroom on time.
In many parts of the world, getting to school is a challenge in itself, and this globetrotting documentary shows us what some young people must face simply to make it to the classroom. In Kenya, Jackson and his sister cross paths with dangerous elephants; in Patagonia, Carlito and his little sister ride a horse over 18 kilometres each way through treacherous terrain; in Morocco, Zahira and her friends trek across mountains and even resort to hitchhiking to get to class on time; and in India, Samuel is pushed through swamplands in a homemade wheelchair by his younger brothers. Touching and inspiring, On the Way to School celebrates the strength, determination and courage of these young students willing to brave great obstacles in order to pursue their education.
