Subject: In a southwestern China village a bevy of young girls earns for education. Their parents are poor and illiterate. It is difficult for them to find money to send their daughters to school to another village. We follow the girls as they make the weekly three-hour trip to the local school. Among the teachers there is only one who encourages them in their studies and challenges them to progress. But we also witness the pain of one family which simply cannot pay for their daughter’s education. Nevertheless the girls cope with all the troubles and keep to their dreams of becoming teachers and doctors.
