Oscar-winning short has an adult (narration by John Nesbitt) looking back at his childhood where he was taught by a stern teacher in a one-room school. This is a pretty good short as it does a very good job at showing how an adult can look back at his childhood with fond memories of something small yet that thing might have meant the world to them. This film is also a social commentary as we get a few punches thrown about various highways that are going up and cutting into the old country school, which allowed kids to be taught by the same person throughout their young lives. Nana Bryant, a veteran of over one-hundred films, does a nice job in her role even though she doesn't have a single line of dialogue. The film runs a short 12-minutes but there's enough kindness in the film to make it worth viewing.
