Following five children for 12 years as they struggle to get a basic education, this affecting documentary puts a human face on a global crisis.

Neeraj in India, Joab in Kenya, Nanavi in Benin, Jefferson in Brazil, and Shugufa in Afghanistan all started primary school in 2003—by 2016, Neeraj had dropped out of school to work on the farm, Joab had temporarily dropped out, Nanavi dropped out but began studying photography as an apprentice, Shugufa graduated high school with honors and began studying Islamic law at university, and Jefferson was still in high school. The variance in their separate fates raises important questions about the state of education around the world.
