A math teacher arrives at classroom to give a lesson on perspective only to find her students sitting there completely naked and in silence. Totally confused, she undresses as well and proceeds with the class. But there's a catch.
An uncompromising and controversial short set in the Scandinavian suburbia on the hottest day of the summer. A sister reluctantly babysits her little brother. Two young boys catch her attention, and she makes a crucial decision.

A new teacher comes to class to teach a lesson on a complicated math theorem. The class is waiting completely nude and catches her off guard. She takes off her clothes before the beginning of her lesson. During the lesson, the students put their clothes back on and take away her clothes, as she is concentrated solely on the theorem. Upon finishing, she is embarrassed that they are clothed and she is left naked, but there is now someone at the door. The class ask the unknown to come in, and they find a naked teacher but clothed students. Inspired by a mathematical rhetoric.Written by
it could have a lot of interpretations. parable about perspective to see reality, joke against the young teacher, need to be different or to dominate. in fact, it is only a film about the spirit of an age. about the war between teacher and students, about the desire to be accepted of the first, about cruelty forms of the second. nothing new, surprising or remarkable. the lesson, the revenge, the passion of the young woman to explain the lesson, ignoring the change, the open door and her embarrassment are normal ingredients of a honest view about school. and about the looking for symbols, special significations of the public.
