Plot :

In Montreal, an elementary school teacher kills herself. Bachir Lazhar, an Algerian immigrant, is quickly hired to replace her while he is experiencing a personal tragedy of his own. His wife, who was a teacher and writer, died in a criminal arson attack with her daughter and son, a fire caused by targets (along with their associates) of the last book she wrote dealing with the social and economic shortcomings in present-day Algeria, from which comes the phrase eloquently said by Bachir: "Nothing is ever really normal in Algeria." He gets to know his students despite the cultural gap that is evident from the very first lesson. As the class tries to move on from their former teacher's suicide, nobody at the school is aware of Bachir's painful past, who could be deported at any time given his status as a refugee.
