Storyline

Jackson, the Kenyan; Carlito, the Argentinian; Zahira, the Moroccan; Samuel, the Indian: four children who live light years away from each other and who have never met but who have a common point: they have to cover tremendously long distances to reach their school. On foot, on horseback or in a wheelchair, but all with an extraordinary determination... Written by Guy Bellinger

Nice ... if perhaps more than a little fictionalized
16 April 2016 | by (Winnipeg, Canada) – See all my reviews

An interesting documentary about the lengths four kids from different parts of the world have to go through to get to school, marred only by the fact that most if not all of it is pretty obviously staged. There are several moments where the kids face difficulties that an adult could help them with, and they bemoan the fact that there are no adults around to help them ... if only a camera crew were standing next to them, huh? There's one scene where the children face imminent peril from wild animals ... yet the camera crew makes no attempt to get away. I'm not suggesting the content of this film is made up. I believe that it's true. But with the film containing so many immaculately shot sequences from multiple angles, it's obvious it was staged, which can't help but make you wonder how much elaboration happened for dramatic purposes.
