Synopsis

Hugh Laurie stars in this New Zealand drama adapted from the novel by Lloyd Jones. Set in 1989, the film follows teacher Mr Watts (Laurie) as he re-opens the local school on the war-torn island of Bougainville. With civil war raging all around, 14-year-old pupil Matilda (Xzannjah Matsi) is able to find comfort in the novel Great Expectations, which Mr Watts begins reading to the children.
