Product Description: 

In remote Nepal, the Riverside School is a unique educational environment that educates low caste and tribal children, half of whom are girls. Children flourish in an environment free of the caste system, gender prejudice, and violence found in government schools and in their society at large. Follow the school's struggle to stay afloat during the ten year civil war in which children are caught in the middle. The police accuse them of being Maoist rebels while the rebels forcibly draft children over twelve years old into their army. Though Nepal is enjoying a tenuous peace, the future is uncertain.
