MJFF - Once in a Lifetime Free Youth Screening

A no-nonsense history teacher at a rough high school on the outskirts of Paris is determined to give her underprivileged pupils the best possible education.  She proposes a unique assignment to her multi-cultural class:  a national competition on the theme of Children Under the Nazi Regime. These troubled, rebellious teens resist the project, challenging its relevance to their lives. A surprise classroom visitor inspires them to re-examine their attitudes. Winning the competition is a long shot, but working together the students begin to see each otherand themselvesin a whole new light. Based on a true story.
