A World Apart, a film directed by Riccardo Milani, tells the story of Michele Cortese (Antonio Albanese), an elementary school teacher, who seems to be about to embark on a new life. After having taught for forty years in the jungle of Roman schools, the man manages to be assigned to the Cesidio Gentile Institute known as Jurico, a school located in the Abruzzo National Park, with a single multi-class of children ranging from 7 to 10 years. Helped by the vice-principal Agnese (Virginia Raffael​e) and the students, Michele overcomes his initial metropolitan inadequacy and slowly becomes one of them. When everything starts going right, however, horrible news arrives: due to low enrollment, the school will close forever in June. This is how Michele, Agnese and the children will begin a long race against time to prevent this small school reality from ceasing to exist.
