This is a story of ambition, about beating the odds, and about the massive changes that are convulsing Indian society. We watch as poor, but brilliant Indian teenagers are helped to become multi-millionaires and power brokers – especially in the IT world. The film explores the vision of two remarkable men and their school, the Ramanujan Academy, in Patna. Bihar Province is India’s poorest state. Fewer than half of its 90 million inhabitants can sign their own name. Yet each year 30 impoverished children are chosen for an intensive tutoring programme that prepares them to compete for the world’s toughest university, the Indian Institutes of Technology. It follows the year-long cycle of the 2007 ‘Super-30’ as they begin a journey away from the grinding poverty of Indian village life to the cutting edge of global science, technology and business.
