A documentary about children who live, work and study at The Terminal marketplace, Guatemala City. The Terminal is a market, bus station and home to hundreds of families. It has been described as ‘a city within a city’ and presents many risks for children who exist beyond the reach of mainstream schooling. In this film we learn, through the photographs, drawings and words of some of these children, how two volunteer educational outreach projects help them to develop a sense of belonging, hope and opportunity.

The director will be present in the screening
