For children who grow up in poor, rural Nicaragua, the future is anything but rosy. They often go hungry and work from early childhood. Filmmaker Marcello Bukin has made a touching and beautifully filmed portrait of these children, who are able to temporarily escape their harsh living conditions by attending a drawing class. The children do not lose their determination, despite extreme poverty.
