In a small village, Jean-Michel Burel, a school teacher in a multi-level class, is beginning his last school year before retirement.

He teaches tolerance and wisdom as well as spelling and mathematics. He conducts his program with determination. He strives to give his students confidence and encourages them to aim higher.

Through the eyes of a former pupil, now a filmmaker, a timeless school takes shape where rigor is combined with good humour, where respect is emphasized. A school that belongs to everyone and is the universal domain of childhood.
