Rainbow Troops (Mandarin Edition)

《天虹战队小学》

Ikal is a student at the poorest village school, which is under constant threat of closure. Ikal and his friends—a group nicknamed the Rainbow Troops—face threats from every angle: skeptical government officials, greedy corporations hardly distinguishable from the colonialism they’ve replaced, deepening poverty and crumbling infrastructure, and their own low self-confidence.But the students also have hope.

《天虹战队小学》讲述了一个励志故事:在南太平洋上,有专为穷人而建的学校,条件简陋,资源匮乏,破洞比砖瓦还多。下雨天,老师要撑着香蕉叶上课,校长要卖菜为学生买课本,天才学生每天得游过鳄鱼栖息地上学,最有艺术细胞的孩子用零成本打造狂欢节演出……但他们的老师,拒绝了“前途美好”的工作,到这里教书。没有工资,靠做针线活赚取生活费。孩子们和老师一起,为了理想向命运宣战,亲身践行那句古老的格言:“那些没把你击垮的,最终只会让你更强大。”
