In India, more than 3 million girls are out of school. Five adventurers set out to get a deeper understanding of the situation by crossing the country in the most unsuitable vehicle. They drive a motor rickshaw 3000km from south to north to explore the education landscape of the subcontinent. Along the way they encounter drama, make unexpected friendships and learn about the challenges that girls face. A road movie with a twist.
