The drifting classroom

On the same day as her fiancé moves out of their shared apartment, Zane Sirma starts her new job at a senior high school. Faced with a chaos of teenage hormones, social insecurities and a fundamental lack of respect for the concept of education, she decides to relate to the students on their own terms, and ends up partying with her class. Zane's methods initially give great results, but soon she is involved in both romantic and maternal relationships with her students.

Meet the director and participants at the screenings September 27. and September 28.
