Every day during exam season, as the sun sets over Conakry, Guinea, hundreds of school children begin a nightly pilgrimage to the airport, gas stations and the wealthy parts of the city, searching for light to enable them to study. This evocative documentary tells the story of these children’s inspiring struggle for education in the face of their country’s own fight for change. Directed by Eva Weber.
