PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2009.
It is 1912. In a small town's parish school run by priests the school year starts off in an ordinary way. This autumn, however, the pupils are overcome by a strangely overwhelming rowdiness, leading them to come up with increasingly more outrageous pranks.
The school welcomes a new teacher, Father Weigl. The new, young teacher is aghast at his colleagues' liberal approach to the excessively bad behaviour of the teenage pupils. Father Zoltán, the form master of the 7th year students, pays less and less attention to the events taking place right around him. His younger brother, deafened in a boxing match, was on his way to Boston for surgery at Father Zoltán's urging. The brother was aboard the Titanic, which collided with an iceberg. The official report on the injured and casualties is yet to be released.
One day, events take a sudden turn...
