Due to a huge difference in the way they perceive life, the relationship between the students at a Slovenian high school and their new German language teacher becomes fraught. When one of the students commits suicide, her classmates blame the German teacher for her death.
"I wanted the movie to reflect life and, in life, nothing is black or white. Good and evil are always linked. The identification of who is right or wrong is emotional. The film is like an emotional slalom between the students and the teachers, the parents and the students, the parents and the teachers and the teachers amongst themselves. The parents want what is good for their children by giving them freedom and imposing no parental authority, but that doesn't help them prepare for the life they will have to face. The teacher is harsh with them and that is also for their own good. He coldly makes them face their own responsibilities." [Rok Biček]
