Plot synopsis
Katya and Vasya, two young teachers, arrive in a small provincial town. They don’t have professional qualifications, but love children and have a passionate desire to instill the eternal values of reason and kindess. They dream of changing the school education system, but the reality turns out to be a lot more difficult than they had imagined. Half of the children in the school are planning to transfer to a vocational college after the 9th grade and have little interest in creativity: for them school is something akin to a penal colony. Can Katya and Vasya preserve their enthusiasm? Will they be able to find a common language with these difficult teenagers? And will they stay on for another academic year?
