Roberto Benigni and Dominique Laffin co-star in this symbolic social drama about a well-meaning teacher and his young pre-school class. Although his unconventional techniques enthrall his young students, his methods stir controversy among the more traditionally minded parents and school administrators. A trip to a nearby factory enlightens the kids but draws criticism from the parent's of the children who work there. The concerned teacher is questioned by police when he helps a young five-year-old fiddle player who runs away from home.
