Against the background of a Roman school we follow the stories of a history of art professor who has lost his passion for the job and is now being targeted by an ex pupil of his, a young temporary Italian Lit teacher who is doing his best and trying to “save” a very eccentric and rebel female student, and a very stern and irreproachable head mistress who is forced to deal with a strange student who has been forgotten by his mother...
A comedy about the school environment, an ensemble narrative that combines emotion and irony.
