Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2014


Chala is eleven years old and lives alone with his drug addict mother. He trains fighting dogs for a living, and this world of violence sometimes surfaces when he is at school. Carmela is his sixth grade teacher, for whom the boy feels affection and respect. One day she becomes ill and must give up school for several months. The new teacher, unable to understand Chala’s behavior, sends him off to a re-education school. When Carmela returns, she rebels against this measure and other transformations her class has been subjected to. The relationship between the veteran teacher and the boy grows stronger, but this mutual commitment will jeopardize their permanence at the school.
