PARTING is a fresh, funny and touching story about three teenage girls - Salla, Reeta and Paula - who start junior high in the autumn.
Gradually Salla becomes friends with her former teacher. Long talks, walks and looks make the young girl's heart burst. Troubled by his marriage, the teacher cannot really understand Salla's adolescent emotional life, and by the end of the term, the two worlds collide.

Parting is the second film by Mari Rantasila.
