Forest for the Trees


Synopsis

Melanie leaves home to become a teacher, armed with alternative methods and bright-eyed optimism. Soon enough, though, storm clouds begin to form: she’s tortured by her students and rejected by her colleagues. There’s no comfort in her personal life either, as loneliness begins to take its toll. Eager for some kind of companionship aside from the creepy Thorsten, the only co-worker her age, Melanie orchestrates a "chance meeting" with her attractive neighbour and begins to insinuate herself into her neighbours’ life.
