Synopsis:

Filmmaker Michel Gondry turns from the playful semi-surrealism of his features to the personal story of a beloved family member in this documentary. Suzette Gondry is Michel's aunt and a retired schoolteacher; she educated children in rural communities in France from 1952 to 1986. We accompany her on a journey in which she visits the many schools where she taught and speaks of her experiences.
