A kindergarten teacher discovers that one of her students, a five-year old boy, has a gift for poetry. She drives the boy to achieve greatness despite the advice of others. Highly acclaimed director Nadav Lapid directs a gripping tale about sensitive souls and a female Don Quixote. "It is a precisely lensed, cool-headed denunciation of crass contempo life and its inability to value the poetic", Variety.
