SYNOPSIS

A professor from a prestigious private school for gifted kids commits suicide by diving off a window during a lesson. His actions remain a mystery and the class receives a substitute teacher, Pierre Hoffman, who immediately understands that the boys and girls have witnessed a traumatic event and thus they show hostility and subdued violence towards him. The school principal explains to him the peculiar personality of these pupils and their high IQ. Six of these kids are especially close: they are terrified by the ecological threat and are not very hopeful for the future. It’s up to the new teacher to uncover their secret.
