Directed by: Yann Tonnar
Max Fischbach teaches a welcome class. Kids from all nationalities, who have recently arrived here, are taught languages among other subjects, so they can be integrated into the normal school system. A tough situation, knowing that these kids speak Arabic, Farsi, Portuguese or Chinese at home, and that they arrive here with plenty of baggage from the past. Dealing with his students and their parents, Max finds himself at a cultural intersection; he experiences integration not just as an empty word, but as a daily challenge.
