The future of the world is perhaps being played out in an elementary school in Quebec. A teacher implements a new teaching method known as action research, which is aimed at preparing children to take up environmental challenges. During a very special school year, the students of Dominique Leduc's sixth-grade class are learning to identify, rigorously analyze, and resolve problems in their world. They also learn about the uncertainty faced by those who want to change things. A unique and invaluable witness to this experimental educational project, this documentary demonstrates how this teaching method is important in developing critical intelligence in students, but it also underlines the crucial role of the teacher. Director emeritus Fernand Dansereau reminds us therefore that we must still look to the human instinct to find reasons to hope.
