A story based on the life of Antoni Benaiges. He was sent to work in a small village in Burgos where he changed the lives of his pupils because he was a different and unique teacher. Antoni was a follower of Freinet's pedagogical ideas based on giving pupils the right to express themselves. Antoni realised that his pupils had never been to the sea and together they published a journal entitled The Sea, a Vision by Children who Had Never Seen Her.
