    • Synopsis
    • 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.
