Description

Because he was permitted to survive World War II, French Jew, Joseph Brill has dedicated his life to the exhortation of his childhood rabbi--to teach. As principal of a school in the American midwest, he teaches his version of enlightenment hoping to make a difference. But all he sees around him is debilitating mediocrity until the brilliant Hester Lilt enrolls her daughter in his school.
