Mr Bachmann is a 64-year-old comprehensive school teacher for class 6b. The class comprises a group of 12 – 14-year old students from nine different countries with varying levels of aptitude. The multiculturalism the children experience causes mild clashes due to largely religious, linguistic and ethical differences. Mr Bachmann’s intimate, holistic and progressive approach to teaching elevates the bond between teacher and pupil and gives this story hope, yet, his unconventional methods are tested by the complexities of the social realities inherent in the provincial German industrial town.
