In St Just-and-Vacquières, Jean-Michel Burel, a schoolmaster of a multilevel class, begins his last school year before retirement. The teacher teaches tolerance and wisdom in the same way as spelling and mathematics. He leads his program with determination. He strives to support students to give them confidence and elevate them higher. Through the eyes of a former student, now a director, there is a timeless school where rigor is combined with good humor, a school where freedom begins with respect for others. A school that belongs to everyone and to the universal domain of childhood.
