Description: In 2003, the Kenyan government introduced free primary school for all. It was a surprise to all when 84-year-old village elder, Kimani Nganga Maruge, saw this as an opportunity of a lifetime to receive the education he had always wanted, but could never afford. With the help of Jane Obinchu, the principal of Maruge's village school, Kimani battles the opposition at a governmental level in his quest for an education.
