A journey of hope against a background of fear and violence
16 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This very watchable documentary follows the fate of a yellow school bus once decommissioned from active service on the school run. From the auction to the transit run through the eyes of the courier. On delivery, the importer's perspective is laid out. Side stories of the purchaser of the "raw goods", those transforming the bus fit for purpose for its new life, the background fears of the new drivers, a glimpse into home lives and the price being paid for potential advancement. It was just long enough and just detailed enough. A very objective account of a fascinating upcycling story. The only reason I marked it less than a 10 was that it was a dispassionate account that didn't really engage me emotionally.
