The film tells the emotional story of three young teachers and their first working experience at school, a period called “Referendariat” in Germany. They realize that their studies have left them unprepared for one of the most responsible and important jobs. A rare insight into fabricating one of the most essential resources of modern times: education. A coming of age story of three young people whose idealism clashes with a harsh reality.
