Education is not free for everyone! This short documentary shows the passion for education that these young Pakistani children have and what they are willing to do to pay for it. Watching this brought tears to my eyes. When I think of all the children who take their education for granted, I want them to see this - to see how much it means to those less privileged. Thanks to this fine director for bringing this subject to the forefront and showing us the lives of these children. Recommended for ages 10 to 18.
