Neas Ni chianáin and David Rane bring us a documentary with a classic narrative that will stimulate your imagination. The movie tells the story of Jon and Amanda, two teachers that work in Headfort School. Both living in a house near the boarding school in which they have worked for more than fifty years. There, they spend each day creating a magical world for the children, who are aged between 7 and 12 years. With the help of the staff, the students enjoy rock & roll, maths and Latin. The directors of the documentary stayed with the teachers and the kids for one year and were so charmed by the teachers' ability to use their magic of teaching to instil within the children the skills they need as adults.
