A twelve-year old girl named PENDA, has been saving up money in her piggybanks for the last 30 months, in order to travel to prison to meet her father for the very first time in her life. She has one more year to go before she finally meets him. When Penda's best friends, who are refugees, are rejected by the school system for lack of proper immigration documents, Penda takes the matter into her own hands. She establishes an afternoon class in her neighbourhood for the children rejected by the formal school system. She resolves to spend all her hard-earned savings and defer her dream of meeting her father.
