A good start to school depends on three fundamental gifts: the ability to communicate effectively, a talent for fitting in well with others, and an ambition to learn. This program tracks the challenges, setbacks, and successes in the lives of a half-dozen five-year-olds as they prepare for the world of organized education. When it comes to school readiness, why is Ben, the smallest of quintuplets, lagging behind? Can science explain why Decklan is such an engaging chatterbox? Will school be too much for unpredictable Jara'na? And how will a range of factors--such as the role of higher education in Haleema's family, Sofia's apprehension about seeing her father in the hospital, or Anastasija's attitude towards authority--impact the learning potential with which these children are blessed?

Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, they board a leaky refugee boat, are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, live in a Kenyan refugee camp and visit slums in Jordan before ultimately making it to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Iraq, protected by UN Peacekeepers and the US military. For some of them it's their first time abroad. For all of them, it's an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives." -- SBS website
