Once in a Lifetime

 

Synopsis

A dedicated history teacher at a French high school taps lessons of the Holocaust in an effort to motivate her students in this uplifting drama based on a true story. A teacher is determined to give the best education she can to her underprivileged inner-city pupils. Overcoming their apathy, however, is proving to be more difficult than expected. Frustrated but undaunted, Anne tests her multicultural classroom with a unique assignment: a national competition on the theme of child victims of the Nazi concentration camps. Her students soon begin to see one another—and themselves—in a whole new light.
