Every morning 12-­year-­old Luis Miguel wakes up at 6 am to work in the coffee field alongside his brother, father, and the other kids in his village in Guatemala. At 11 a.m., he returns home, changes clothes, grabs his notebooks, and begins the three­-hour walk to Los Patojos, the nearest school with a 7th a grade. However, he journeys for more than just an education. At Los Patojos, he learns to question society, explores his artistic side, and realizes his dreams of becoming a teacher. As the end of the school year rapidly approaches the future of his education is uncertain.
