Carmela, a teacher nearing retirement, has a special place in her heart for kids like 11-year-old Chala. He lives in a run-down Havana neighborhood with his alcoholic mother, whom he supports by selling pigeons and training dogs to fight. When Chala’s behavior at school gets him into trouble, the headmaster wants to send him to a reform school. Carmela strongly advocates on his behalf, then falls ill—who will prevail? A superbly acted exploration of education in social context. In Spanish with English subtitles.
