Idealistic teacher Daniel Lefebvre [Philippe Torreton] fights personal and professional battles in this uncompromising drama from acclaimed French director Bertrand Tavernier. Teaching at a school in an impoverished former mining community, Daniel is constantly faced with complex and emotional decisions as he seeks to inspire and educate the children in his power, against the odds. Despite the endless frustrations of bureaucratic social services, and dealing with abusive parents and troubled children, Daniel holds onto his integrity, in this hard hitting but essentially life affirming drama.
