Marie and Juliette left the traditional education system to open a school in the heart of Brussels where they welcome children with no schooling background, often coming from exile. They offer them a home and a time outside of formal learning to be or become children again, before facing the school institution that will expect them to be pupils. Through their attempts and their educational reflections, the film forces us to question the school as a place responsible for oppressive relationships that affect us all. A documentary testifying to the flaws of the educational system in a frontal way and highlighting two exceptional teachers, whose resilience is beyond comprehension.
