We are in 1920, in a small village of Provence, in the south of France. Mr. Pascal, a new teacher at the school, clashes with the lack of interest of his students. He decides to radically change his teaching methods. He listens to children, is inspired by their discoveries and interests, goes with them to nature. In this way, a different relationship develops between them, which will result in his students regaining the joy of learning and Mr. Pascal teaching joy. But this small revolution is being maligned by some parents and actors in the region.
