Jury Statement: It´s a potent and smartly written piece that ponders grand questions about treatment of history in a contained and simple setting.

Julia, an experienced history teacher in a rather quiet high school, faces a school inspector. He wants to talk to her. But what about, exactly? Her heated debates with the principal? The freedom she takes with the school program? Or the way she teaches the Shoah?
