This drama time-set occurs in Czecho-Slovakian Socialist Republic in 1980es.
A manipulative school teacher who is also a local Communist Party secretary abuses her position and status to extort all kinds of favors: food, different services, etc. from her pupils and their parents. Authors masterfully show the atmosphere of silence, fear and helplessness in the face of anybody who represents the power of the State. Even though it was happening in Czecho-Slovakia, it was typical for any socialist regime.

The movie looks quite authentic and realistic. Good performances, directing and music score.

One has to come through a similar personal experience to fully understand the magnitude of soul corruption that a regime like that causes its subjects. It's effects live much longer than the regime itself.
