Indian School captures a year in one of the world’s fastest-growing cities (Pune near Mumbai), as witnessed by the students in two schools. This ‘rising generation,’ as it has been dubbed, is being given the skills to compete with the world in what many consider will be India’s century. This film follows the pupils as they gain the talents to not only be contributing members of Indian society, but also as they learn to be moral, well-rounded people.

Indian School is a unique peek into the Indian middle class, and follows on the heels of Lion’s successful African School. As the One World Trust described the previous series (when presenting it with an award), Lion’s approach challenges preconceptions and creates a better understanding of the issues facing developing countries. Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
