Could have been better
4 April 2012 | by ranadedeepika9See all my reviews

For someone who hails from a well-to-do family in a developing country, I could not relate to the movie. I understand that life is difficult, but I don't understand how can someone choose to pay for a car and its insurance and then say at the end of the movie that she dint apply to a university because of a 50$ application form! Neither can I understand how can a student dream of being a doctor without taking enough Core Science courses!

Of the 4 students, I liked the story of Cecilia a lot. An underlying message through all the 4 stories is that if you want your kids to excel in life, the atmosphere at home should be conducive for it. For Cecilia, this encouragement and support came through her best friend's family, which was heartening. After the screening at our University, we got to interact with Cecilia via Skype.

The documentary highlights the need of a career counselor in the high schools, and students should be made aware of the scholarships and opportunities that are out there. The documentary can be a baby step to achieve Goal 2025, but there still a lot that needs to be done.
