Romania / 2019 / documentary / 82' / Somewhere in Europe. Boys Do Cry

He is a man of passion, an enthusiast of knowledge and, above all, an erudite and an exceptional teacher. The protagonist of the documentary, who had become tired of railing against the Romanian system of education, took matters in his own hands and founded a school. At his own home, with passion, he teaches a group of students of different ages. A mentor and an idealist, he gives his students an extraordinary lesson of life along with solving maths problems. They become infected with his faith in the power of science and knowledge. At the same time, they get to know a unique personality, sometimes irritating and grouchy, who also loves cats and Romanian music.
