A Country Teacher

 
A young teacher with an impressive resume takes a job teaching natural sciences at a village grammar school. He makes acquaintance with a woman and her 17-year old son. The teacher has no romantic interest in the woman but that doesn‘t stop them from forming a friendship. One day, the teacher‘s ex-boyfriend comes to visit and quickly realizes that nobody in the village knows that the teacher is gay. He also realizes that the teacher harbors a secret affection for the 17-year old boy. His jealous actions set in motion a series of events that tests the inner strength and compassion of the teacher, the woman and her son.
