Synopsis:
Tobias is a clever kid who seizes school as a way to forget his domestic troubles while his new teacher Kees still has to learn the profession. Tobias and his classmates are used to making a racket, but Mr. Kees is so young and diffident that they are amazed into silence. From pure inexperience, Mees Kees does all things differently. Soon, his classes become a real treat. Moreover, he clearly recognises that Tobias is troubled. Tobias’ father has died and his depressed mother is in bed all day. Mees Kees is the best thing that could happen to Tobias. However, the strict principal does not like Kees’ approach at all and the question is whether he can stay.
