In 2000 the world's leaders came together and established eight goals aimed at making the developing world a better place for future generations. These time-bound targets addressed extreme poverty, hunger and disease, and promoted gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability. In 2015, 15 years on the United Nations is reassessing the goals and laying out its future ambitions. This film travels across the world, from kids hustling to get by on the streets of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo to 11 year olds working on rubbish tips in Cambodia and teenagers affected by drought in California. We hear directly from the children living and working in the some of the toughest places in the world. Have their lives changed and what does the future hold? Both a celebration of the achievements of the past 15 years and a call to arms, this film offers a compelling and dramatic snapshot of what life is like for young people around the world now.
