This film follows the hardships Lahu girls face as they come down from the hills to enroll at a Chinese primary school. The Chinese students laugh as the Lahu girls who finish last in races and on tests. One girl falls ill, and is sent home; another finds out her mother has run away. The girls' teacher feels frustrated and hopeless; the school principal wishes he had never admitted them. Can the Lahu girls make it in modern-day China? And what price will they have to pay? Do Chinese schools empower or assimilate China's minority children? "Children of Blessing" takes a controversial stance on this ever sensitive question.

幾個世紀來,拉祜族,一個信奉基督的母系民族變化不大,但中國近期的經濟發展給拉祜族帶來打擊。大家都認為拉祜族將走向衰落,除非她們忘記自己的傳統,融入新的社會。該片攝製歷時一年,記錄了一批拉祜族女孩下了山,在漢族小學上學的艱辛過程。這些女孩能不能真的融入現代中國社會,她們為此要付出什麼代價?中國的學校能同化或溶化這些少數民族的孩子嗎?該片的作者對此並不樂觀。影片也直擊了當前的敏感命題:教育系統如何同化孩子的思想。
