In Varanasi, where the Ganges is laden with nothing but corpses and wretched remains of life, a young professor comes up with a new way to bring education to the neglected children of the Ghat fishermen. Every day, a rusty old rowing boat is turned into a floating school and, as it heads toward the foggy horizon of a vast open landscape, a small class learns how to write and how to dream. The story of this boat is a fairy tale intended for everyone. It’s a short parable, in which a world of dreams and fears is revealed. The tale of this boat that becomes a school is a small trace of a changing and growing India, that improves even without the help of modern technology.
