A seemingly passionate and kind teacher uses her pupils to manipulate their parents for her own personal benefit, whether for material gain or even the promise of a romantic affair.
Concerned about the school performance of their beloved children, most parents succumb to the pressure and provide the teacher with various services and gifts. Three families, however, decide to take a stand and try to remedy the situation together with the school head teacher at a clandestine parent meeting. Inspired by true events, this suspenseful and highly topical film about the strength of human character, although set in the early 1980s, tells a universal story that could happen anytime and anywhere… at least as long as corruption, pettiness, and selfishness still rule the world.
