An inspiring Education journey to the Nordic North in a cinematic portrait of childhood, education and play. Filmed in Denmark, Norway and Sweden and the USA, NATUREPLAY portrays the Scandinavian method of teaching, living and enjoying nature, juxtaposed with the high stakes/high stress American testing Edu culture.
