      Movie Info

      Rainer (Jürgen Vogel), a teacher, is given the task of instructing his high school students about the autocratic state during a week-long session dedicated to longer-term lessons. A favorite among the kids, Rainer decides to let his students run with the subject matter, and he asks them to construct their own autocracy. However, when the kids start forming a nation state eerily similar to Nazi Germany, Rainer and the other teachers become unnerved and uncertain what to do.
