    • Synopsis
    • BASED ON A TRUE STORY
      Anne Gueguen is more than just a high school history teacher: she actually cares about the troubled, inner-city students she¹s supposed to educate. And this year, it’s tougher than usual. Frustrated by their materialism and lack of ambition, Anne challenges them, despite their unlikelihood of winning, to take part in a national High school Competition around “Children and teenagers in Nazi concentration camps" Determined to push her students as far as they¹ll go, Anne puts her own life on hold and uses all her creativity and willpower to grab their attention and get them motivated. As the deadline creeps closer, the kids start to open up to each other and believe in themselves. And while it may not resolve the challenges of their daily lives now, the collective project¹s outcome could be the one thing that changes the rest of their lives and helps them find their way.
