5 x 60'
They climb up mountainous paths, swim across rivers or fight their way through icy wastelands with -50 degrees Celsius. Their path takes them through amazing natural landscapes, producing spectacular scenery for a very ordinary task. The participants, at times without shoes and for days at end, are mere students on their way to school. This series captivates through a unique mixture of breathtaking scenery, enormous struggle and danger coupled with childlike curiosity, happiness and inquisitiveness. Everyday routine meets the spectacular. Each of us remembers their way to school. But how exciting would it have been, if had ran through the African steppe, with crocodiles making occasionally appearances? Or when the school way had been a narrow path alongside a steep gorge dropping into a deep emptiness? We travel five of the most unusual school ways in the world, and accompany the children as they make their way on these paths.
