We all need to know and understand new ways to communicate our message fast and effectively. This includes all of us: individuals, community schools, schools, organizations, , homeschooling, educators, and teachers.

It documents the everyday experiences at school of the two young girls Yasmin and Lisa, who live in Egypt and Germany respectively. In doing so, the documentary discovers the different worlds of education by experiencing the challenges and advantages the girls are facing in each school system. Researched and filmed from binary cultural perspectives, the movie allows the viewer an in-depth view into the social reality of schools in Egypt and Germany.
