A teacher at a central-Athens public elementary school for 30 years now, Fotis has developed his own teaching approach, fostering team spirit and overcoming the linguistic and cultural barriers facing his multicultural pupils, mostly refugee and immigrant children. The film follows Fotis in the day to day classwork, inspiring and challenging them towards their rite of passage – the graduation performance marking their transition from elementary to secondary education. A humorous, uplifting documentary, with rare access to a public school in a declining area in the heart of Athens, on the outskirts of Europe.
