Plot bullets


  • A young woman experiments with life in a very small Cape Cod town, as the new school teacher.

  • The people of this town are simple, honest and sincere.

  • The town has something to learn from 'Teacher' and 'Teacher' learns even more.

  • There are a few funny situations, but the life in the town is mostly stark and timeless.

  • But the misery is in the eye of the beholder, not in the hearts of the people.



Currently the genre is Humor. There is some humor concerning some school children and some old folks, but not that much, as this story is not a comedy.
