Fresh from the South of France, Samia, a young educational consultant, arrives in a difficult middle-school in the suburbs of Paris. With Moussa and Dylan, two hall monitors who also master punchlines, she runs the School Life team that supervises students throughout the school year. Passionate about her job and assisted by the school’s teachers and her colleagues, Samia will do all she can to motivate discouraged kids and show them that a brighter future is possible… After the success of Step by Step (1.5M admissions in France; 4 César nominations), the talented Grand Corps Malade and Mehdi Idir are back behind the camera with their unique, modern style of filming. Meet vibrant characters who are class-A jokesters and masters of repartee. A breezy, profoundly touching social comedy that is full of hope. With Zita Hanrot (César for Most Promising Actress for Fatima) and Alban Ivanov (Sink or Swim, C’est la Vie!).
