The children depicted in this film live in the four corners of the globe and all share the same desire to learn. They've understood that only education will allow them to improve their lives, and it's for this reason that, each day, they set out on highly risky journeys, through extraordinary landscapes, on their quest for knowledge.
11-year-old Jackson lives in Kenya and, every morning and evening, he and his younger sister walk nine and a half miles across the savannah populated by wild animals.
12-year-old Zahira lives in the steep Atlas Mountains. It takes her and her two friends an exhausting day of walking to reach their boarding school.
13-year-old Samuel lives in India. The two and half miles he must traverse each day are a challenge because his legs are paralyzed. His two younger brothers push his makeshift wheelchair for more than an hour in order to get to school.
11-year-old Carlito crosses the Patagonian plains on horseback, accompanied by his younger sister. Each day the pair travel 11 miles back and forth, no matter the weather.
On the Way to School allows us to share the extraordinary daily lives of these children, whose determination coupled with a dream leads them down a path that we have all taken, but never quite in this way.
