The future of a primary school in a Parisian suburb is under threat when a brand new, fancy school springs up right next door. Principal Zahia fears she’ll lose what little social diversity she has left. She decides to team up with Marion; a young and inexperienced but committed teacher. Together they plan to turn their endangered establishment into the very first suburban green school to attract the new local residents.
