The First Grader

The First Grader

The story of an 84 year-old Kenyan villager who fights for his right to go to school for the first time to get the education he could never afford.

Set in a mountain village in Kenya the film tells the remarkable true and uplifting story of a proud old Mau Mau veteran who is determined to seize his last chance to learn to read and write – and so ends up joining a class alongside six-year olds. Together he and his young teacher face fierce resistance, but ultimately they win through – and also find a new way of overcoming the burdens of the colonial past.
