The teacher of a small town high school gets in conflict with her reluctant student during the online classes. The boy ruins the lessons and humiliates the teacher who is living on her own. The parents of the student are inaccessible. The headmaster puts the dismissal of the youth out of question. The teacher must find a solution on her own: she decides to visit the boy, to talk sense into him, but in his home, she faces a different reality to what she expected.
