PLOT SUMMARY

Dorin Ioniță, a mathematics teacher from Bistrița, leaves the conventional education system and opens a private lectures office in his own apartment, equipped with chairs, benches and even a blackboard.

More details:

Dorin Ioniță’s biggest dream is to have a school that doesn’t adhere to the traditional education system, a place freed from the tyranny of conventional teaching methods.

Throughout a school year we follow his struggle and persistence in bringing back the passion of learning and change for better the lives of his pupils, offering them not only math lessons, but also life lessons.
