Film DescriptionAll it took was a strong heart, a determination and self-belief to overcome the challenges, a desire to stand up against the opinion and expectation of friends and neighbors. Just for one cause, a cause she dares to face no matter how difficult it would be. This is a story of a single mother, who was determined to realize her simple dreams of feeding and sending her four kids to school working in one of the most labor demanding work- cobblestone chiseling. The few days training and less than $ 10 she spend on buying the tools for the work and her perseverance finally paid off, making her a confident and happy mother once again. Currently over 100, 000 people are working on cobblestone and many more are expected to be trained.
