    • Synopsis
    • The Lesson tells the story of Zane, a devoted teacher mentoring the senior class in a Latvian high school. She tries to live her life in the most meaningful way possible. She takes her mission as a teacher seriously and works hard to help her students develop their talents. Even so, as for many younger teachers, it's hard for Zane to keep her distance from her class -- the students soon become a sort of family for her. When she realizes she's falling in love with one of them, the others start to feel left out. She faces a stark choice between her personal happiness and the pressures of society.
