as Mr. Valentine
Everyone can point to at least one teacher in their life who made all the difference…
Mr. Valentine (48) is a literature teacher in a bilingual school based in Poland where he imparts his knowledge and passion for literature.
He's a remarkably complex character, embodying the dual nature of a teacher who deeply cares for his students while simultaneously grappling with the wear of his personal journey. He cares more about what he believes his mission is than about social status.
His tactic for getting students' interest has always been thorough preparation, which is what earned him the title of Teacher of the Year. He enjoys provoking students with interesting anecdotes, but it was also this approach that led to his breakdown during his final lesson about Dostoyevski.
as Jeff Lewy
An 18-year-old who's made an art out of avoiding the daily grind. Work has yet to make an appearance on his agenda, and he seems to be doing just fine without punching the clock. Don't mistake his lack of an achievements for naivety, though. Jeff's got a sharp mind that he wields with confidence.
Cocky but not foolish, he treads the fine line between self-assured and overconfident. He's the kind of person who walks into a room like he owns the place, and somehow, you can't help but be intrigued by his audacity. Jeff's social acumen is his secret weapon, and he enjoys pushing the boundaries of what's socially acceptable. It's not rebellion for the sake of rebellion; it's a calculated game of testing limits and challenging norms.
His approach to life might raise a few eyebrows, but there's an undeniable charm to his devil-may-care attitude.
