The 90-minute documentary introduces viewers to five children from five different countries, struggling to get what all Americans take for granted: a basic education. Combining current-day footage, at the time of their hoped-for high school graduation, with a wealth of material shot over more than a decade, starting in 2003 when they were just entering their first year of school, the film reveals who has made it through, despite daunting obstacles. |Official Website
