Gogo

(Gogo)

Priscille is 94 years old. She has three children, 22 grandchildren and 54 great-grandchildren. And four years ago, she started elementary school to finally learn to read and write.

Everyone calls Priscille by her nickname, Gogo. As a child, she had to submit to her father's will and look after their small farm instead of going to school. After discovering to her horror that her great-grandchildren want to drop out of school, she decides to lead by example and starts attending school with them. Her presence in the classroom is welcomed by all, as is her rich life experience. After a few years, however, her eyesight begins to deteriorate and Gogo must face critical tests. The fairy-tale film tells the story of a woman living her life with the belief that education is a person's greatest asset, a woman who has become the personification of the motto that it is never too late.
