The future of a primary school in a Parisian suburb is under threat when a brand new, fancy school springs up right next door. Principal Zahia fears she’ll lose what little social diversity she has left. She decides to team up with Marion; a young and inexperienced but committed teacher. Together they plan to turn their endangered establishment into the very first suburban green school to attract the new local residents. To pull it off, they will have to work with a team of shall we say… eclectic characters, most of whom aren’t exactly green friendly!
The film’s theatrical release in France will be managed by Haut et Court and international sales by France tv distribution.
