On the Way to School

On the Way to School

Jackson, from Kenya, walks through a savannah populated by wild animals to get to school. Carlito rides across the Argentine plains to do the same. And Zahira has to walk along mountain paths in Morocco before she gets to class. On the Way to School immerses us in the extraordinary routines of these children, who, every day, must set out on a long, perilous journey that will lead them to knowledge.
