Filmmakers Sigrid Klausmann and Lina Luzyte accompanied children from all over the world to school, and invited them to talk about their lives on the way. Children travel on donkeys over the mountains in Jordan, by boatacross the Mekong in Vietnam, on skis down a murderously steep piste or feeling their way forwards with a white stick. The film reveals numerous individual, sometimes sobering lives and horizons of experience of a (self-)confidant generation, that remains full of ideals in the face of a merciless world. A multifaceted portrait of childhood, one that challenges us to approach what is foreign and reflect on what is our own.
