Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation, yet millions of girls aren’t in school. In this fabulous film from Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors give them voice. The film journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Register
