In 1974, ten children enroll in an Islamic elementary school on a small island of the Indonesian archipelago. Most of them are children of poor day laborers going through a tough life, but they all like school. A newly appointed young female teacher calls these unique children the “Rainbow Troops” and is enthusiastic in offering them guidance. “The Rainbow Troops” is a film adaptation of Andrea Hirata's literary work “Laskar Palangi.” The film vividly depicts the lives of the people on the Sumatran Island of Belitong in the 1970s.
