The movie follows Olja, a young high school history teacher, enthusiastic about innovative ways of education. She is married to a painter whose last exhibition sparked violent reactions in the public. A group of hooligans attack her for the show, and the video is uploaded to the internet. A group of hooligans provoked by that exibition, attacked her and uploaded the video to the internet. The next day, she discovers that it was done by one of her students. Devastated and angry, she takes away their cell phones, orders them to find and report the culprits themselves, and locks them in the school building while they do so. In an effort to solve the problem together, students begin to communicate, and during one night they learn more about themselves and their classmates than they have in all previous years. Maybe more than they ever expected. Through the story of one ordinary class, and through students' attitudes and their behavior, we will see a story that tells of a modern society that is full of intolerances and prejudices. The need to publish everything on social networks, as well as the need for voyeurism, is a huge problem of the time we live in, not just the youth. 'Next to Me' is a brave and provocative film about growing up that causes controversy, and is the voice of a young generation who does not want to remain silent and ignore their problems.
