Summary
Petr travels from Prague. The "gifted young teacher takes a job teaching natural sciences at a grammar school in the country. Here he makes the acquaintance of a woman and her troubled 17-year old son. .. When the teacher's ex-boyfriend comes to visit from the city, he quickly realizes that nobody in the village knows that the teacher is gay nand harbors a secret affection for the teenage boy."--Container. The companion movie, "Petr and Ben," is a "touchy and quirky story of how two dropouts found friendship in a hostile world."
