What if the grass was greener (2007)

Original title: Kui seda metsa ees ei oleks...

Documentary Duration 27:00


According to the results of the final exams, Misso Secondary School has been losing the competition among Estonian high schools for years. Tallinn French Lyceum, Secondary School No 21, Tallinn English College and other elite schools have had the leading positions. How adequate are these results after all? What do the little „straw-heads“ (so were the pupils of Misso Secondary School called in a respectable publication) think of it? What do their teachers and tutors think? The film searches for the answers through the everyday life of a province school and philosophy. Are we ready to look inside ourselves and to admit ourselves the way we are? Have we deserved our ranking – either the leading or the last one in the list?
