A retiring party is being organized for a cleaning woman in a school. On the same day, a young school inspector comes to investigate the complaint against the principal filed by a teacher. While the party is being prepared – at public expense, of course – the ambitious inspector realizes that the school is just an outward show; in reality, it is consumed by intolerance. It seems the party is about to be anything but a decent farewell. All That Jack’s was shelved for a while because it allegedly portrayed educational workers in a negative light.
