Detachment

Detachment


  • Want to have some fun?

A substitute teacher avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form a bond with either his students or colleagues. A lost soul grappling with a troubled past, he finds himself at a public school where an apathetic student body has created a frustrated, burned-out administration. Inadvertently becoming a role model to his students, while also bonding with a runaway teen who is just as lost as he is, he finds that he's not alone in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.
