I was inspired to make this film about this amazing school in Abaco by my friend Mavis Payne. Mavis and her husband John had moored their sailboat in the harbour at Hopetown for many years, under the watchful eye of Truman Major and they became good friends with him and his wife, Lyn. When Lyn decided to start up the school Every Child Counts, Mavis and John became big supporters. Mavis suggested I make a film to tell the touching story of how it all began and the amazing effect it has had on the community.
