The plot of A world apart
For elementary school teacher Michele Cortese a new life seems to be opening up. After 40 years of teaching in the Roman jungle, he manages to be assigned to the Cesidio Gentile Institute known as Jurico: a school made up of a single multi-class, with children aged 7 to 10, in the heart of the Abruzzo National Park.
Thanks to the help of the vice principal Agnese and the children, he overcomes his metropolitan inadequacy and becomes one of them. When everything seems to be going well, however, the news arrives that the school, due to lack of enrolments, will close in June. Thus begins a race against time to avoid its closure in any way.
