The Jew

The director of a small-town school that’s about to be closed calls a meeting in the teachers’ lounge, hoping to save the building where he’s been working for more than 40 years. Selected members of the faculty, more distinguished than their boss, find out that there’s an easy way to get funds for renovating their place of employment: It’s enough to write to a certain Israeli man, whose father attended their school years ago. The seemingly comic meeting transforms into a dispute full of stereotypes, giving the assembled teachers the opportunity to discuss the past of their town, where Jews made up half the population before the war.
