Synopsis:

A Professor’s private lesson begins well, his pupil seems remarkably gifted. Suddenly he discovers she cannot subtract. The lesson gets more and more frenzied as he persists in forcing her to understand. Maddened by her “incompetence” he reaches his limits but how far will he go to ensure her education? The Lesson satirizes totalitarianism in education, politics, language, psychology, and sexuality.
