An observational documentary set in post-conflict Belfast, where a marginalized working class community struggles to survive and generational traumas linger. Enter Kevin McArevey, a visionary, Elvis-loving, Plato-loving primary school headmaster, who dares to imagine that even the youngest school children can apply the tools of philosophy to the conflicts and challenges of their lives and of their communities and find new confidence to enact real change. Heart-warming and inspiring, this is a story about the power of education and love.
