A documentary on the teenagers who boldly challenge the educational system and this era that promote so-called \'limitless competition\' from elementary schools. The director rejected the educational system herself and deliberates on alternative education. She makes up a new vocabulary, \'Road-schooler\', to represent the teenagers who deny the names such as home-schoolers or school-quitters and learn on the road about life itself.
A documentary on teenagers who boldly challenge the educational system and contemporary times that promote so-called ‘limitless competition’ from elementary schools. The director rejected the educational system herself and reflects upon alternative education. She coins a new phrase, ‘Road-schooler’, that refers to teenagers who reject terms such as home-schoolers or schoolquitters and learn on the road about life itself. This is a breath of fresh air despite the very competitive Korean educational reality that meets these teenagers who choose their own education. (Jay SOHN)
