description

Set in a mountain village in Kenya the film tells the remarkable true and uplifting story of a proud old Mau Mau veteran who is determined to seize his last chance to learn to read and write - and so ends up joining a class alongside six year-olds. Together he and his young teacher face fierce resistance, but ultimately they win through – andalso find a new way of overcoming the burdens of the colonial past.

影片根據真人真事改編,主人翁是列入健力士世界紀錄大全里全球最年長的小學生。他更獲邀到位於紐約的聯合國總部,發表了一篇名為The Power of Education的宣言。
2002年, 肯雅政府決定推行免費教育, 曾爲了國家自由而奮戰的退役老兵馬魯格,80多歲的他一心學習讀與寫,背後有著莫大的因由...而馬魯格刻苦堅忍的毅力,深深感動了教師珍,她決定為這個特別的學生爭取入學機會,此舉卻惹來家長甚至官方的不滿,珍因此被處分。爲了挽留這個不可多得的好老師,馬魯格決定以一己挑戰政府制度。

本片榮獲2010年第二屆多哈電影節最佳劇情片獎。
