A documentary analyzing the modern education system and arguing that this system crushes children's independent thinking, imagination and creativity as they shape to survive in our competitive world. Svenska Dagbladet's Hynek Pallas gives the film the highest rating "It's not often I get goosebumps from documentary films about education, but Erwin Wagenhofer's The Alphabet I have carried with me like a jewel since I saw it last year. Then it's as much a movie about learning and school as a tribute to man's imagination and ability. "
