Summary Hopscotch is universal. Little girl around the world trace squares on the ground, then hop through them, trying hard to reach the end. Little girls share other interests too; they all like to talk about school, what they want to be when they grow up, who they will marry, how many children they will have, their hope for a better life for themselves and their family. All too often, through poverty, perversion, spite, ignorance or superstition, adults shatter these dreams by denying girls the right to an education, entering them into forced labour, subjecting them to mutilation, sexual abuse and other injustices. Little girls in this film range in age from eight to fourteen. Some are frail, some strong; all are beautiful. Whether they live in India, Thailand, Yemen, Peru, Burkina Faso or Haiti, they all speak of having much of their childhood stolen from them. Because they are girls.
