In Varanasi, where the Ganges is laden with nothing but corpses and wretched remains of life, a professor invents a way to bring education to the neglected children of the Ghat fishermen. Every day, an old rowing boat is transformed into a floating school and as they head towards the horizon, a small class learns to write and dream.
