In rural France, schoolteacher Georges Lopez educates 12 children aged between 4 and 11 years old. Over the course of the year, the soon-to-retire Lopez teaches them all in one small classroom. He uses the traditional French teaching tools: rote learning, copying and dictation of literary passages. As the seasons pass, Lopez must keep his students disciplined while preparing the older children for exams that will determine their educational future.
