Winner of Best Director award at the New York International Film Festival: Filmmaker Martin Guinness goes on a voyage of discovery to meet seven children who live in poverty in seven different countries: India, Egypt, New York, Romania, Cambodia, Rwanda and Brazil, who share their experiences of life in poverty so articulately while retaining their joyous spirit of childhood. Each child talks about their day - from waking in the morning to going to sleep at night – as well as their hopes and dreams, their beliefs, their feelings about poverty, education, siblings and parents. In the process we see the conditions in which the children and their families live, and we get a strong sense of each country with background scenes redolent with all the sights and sounds of those cultures. The children express a wide variety of emotions and reveal some surprising information.
