Director Tony Kaye creates a unique and stylized portrait of the American education system through the eyes of teacher Henry Barthes, who wanders in and out of students’ lives, imparting knowledge where and when he can. When a new assignment places him at a failing public school, Henry's insular world is slowly exposed by the teachers, students and administrators he meets. A contemporary vision of people who become increasingly distant from others while still feeling the need to connect.
