Right before graduation, 18-year old student Lena is interested in only one thing: her French teacher Katharina. The two disparate women bond through a secret love, which is brought to an end when Katharina chooses to go back to her old ways. Heartbroken, Lena has to face reality by asking herself where she wants to go in life and if thereʼs another way than the one of “The Cricket and the Ant”.
