The film is about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change a girl -- and the world -- and, tells the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances, capturing their dreams, their voices and their remarkable lives (directed by Academy Award-nominee Richard E. Robbins and narrated by Cate Blanchett, Priyanka Chopra, Selena Gomez, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, Chloë Moretz, Liam Neeson, Freida Pinto, Meryl Streep, and Kerry Washington).
