Based upon an autobiographical novel by Francois Begaudeau, a drama that follows the year in the life of a French schoolteacher functioning at a high-school in a hard area of Paris. Ethnic backgrounds, societies and habits usually argue in the class. As entertaining and inspiring as the teenage students can be, their tough habits could still endanger any teacher’s interest for the low-paying task. Francois urges on an environment of regard and carefulness.
