15.7 KM. This is the total distance a young boy named Budi from Banka Isle, Indonesia must travel to get to school. Not much really happens in the film. It just shows the daily routine of the boy leaving home and walking, riding a boat, maybe lucky enough to hitch a motorcycle ride, and then walking again to finally reach his school. The lack of dialogue in the film reveals the young boy’s reality more powerfully than any words could do. (MAENG Soo-jin)
