Ahlo is a resourceful, plucky 10-year-old who lives in a village in Laos in this poignant coming-of-age tale, which has charming fable-like elements. He was born a twin, but his brother didn’t survive and his superstitious grandmother believes that he is bad luck. One day, it’s announced that the villagers are all to be relocated to make way for a dam. On the move through the lush, majestic mountains with their belongings, Ahlo and his family face more calamity. They arrive at a pitiful makeshift camp. Determined to prove his worth, Ahlo plans to build a giant rocket to enter into an upcoming festival competition.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
