All over France there still are schools consisting of just one class. All children from the village, from kindergarten age right up to the final year in primary school, share one and the same teacher. For better or for worse, these secluded little groups share their everyday life, caught between isolation and a cosmopolitan outlook. One of these schools somewhere in the heart of the Auvergne is where this film was made.
