A Classroom Story
Successful and idealistic, they volunteer for a 2-year full-time program at a school in the small Bulgarian town, joining the less than 5% of European teachers under the age of 30. Despite some adverse personal situations their students’ positive response inspires them. The harsh reality of the damage caused by years of neglect and disdain for the needs of young people will test their resourcefulness and emotions to the fullest. As the depressed small town abounds with examples of economic, academic and personal failure, the kids have been infected with apathy and sense of defeat that seem to doom any ambition. Unprepared for what they find, Iva and Maria decide to show the kids what it means to dream big. But first they‘ll have to show them how to fail big.
