Justin Chadwick directs this heartwarming tale based on a true story. Set in a remote mountain village in Kenya, the film tells the story of 84-year-old former Mau Mau freedom fighter Maruge (Oliver Litondo) and his determination to learn how to read and write. When the Kenyan government promises free education for all, Maruge decides that the time has finally come for him to go to school. Fighting for his right to learn as vehemently as he once fought for his political beliefs, he manages to overcome fierce opposition and ridicule and enrols at the local primary school, where he joins a class of six-year-olds as they learn the rudiments of literacy. Naomie Harris co-stars as the school's impassioned headmistress, Jane Obinchu.
