Mike Enriquez, Dingdong Dantes and their team scour the country and discover the many ingenious, and often heart wrenching, ways Filipinos try to educate themselves. In Manila three siblings, all in first grade, go to class at different times of the day because they share only one pair of shoes. In Babuyan Islands , a single pencil is cut in pieces so more students can write. In Mindanao , they stumble upon Barangay No Read, No Write.

Despite the difficulties, reforms are possible. Enriquez and Dantes also witness how the desire for knowledge can still trump over ignorance.
