Presentation

Veniamin, a teenager going through a mystical crisis, upsets his mother, his classmates, and the entire school with his questions.
- Can girls wear bikinis during swimming lessons?
- Do sex education classes have their place in a school?
- Should the theory of evolution be taught in biology classes?

Adults are quickly overwhelmed by the certainties of a young man who swears only by the Scriptures. Only Elena, his biology teacher, will try to challenge him on his own ground.
