About the film
13 years after graduation, classmates gather in the classroom. Enclosed space and memories bring to the surface stories of pain and humiliation. A seemingly ordinary meeting of friends turns into a process of rethinking the past, one’s own actions, a thirst for revenge and the possibility / impossibility of forgiveness.
