Amar

10 minutes

A teen works two jobs on top of school – because great achievements require time

Fourteen-year-old Amar rises before dawn each morning to deliver newspapers to the still-sleeping residents of Jamshedpur in eastern India. Flying through the city on his bicycle, he is constantly on the move, going from work to school, and back to work again. Someday he’d like to be a professional cricketer, but for now he’s the family’s main breadwinner. Amar (All Great Achievements Require Time) is a simple journey with this remarkable boy, a record of his challenging daily life, and a testament to his quiet determination.
