The first education themed Indonesian movie during Indonesian film industry history is exposed in, Denias, Senandung di Atas Awan. This film presents a struggle of a boy, Denias, in pursuing his dream to achieve a better education and through this movie he is also recognized as a hero. Moreover, in order to help my pursuit in answering my statement of the problem, I applied Christopher Vogler's theory which is the Character Arc. Thus, in the end of this study, I can conclude that a common boy can also be recognized as a hero because he has a great effort. This effort can be seen through his (Denias') inner journey that leads him to be an educated person.
