the evening dress
A 12-year-old girl transforms a crush she has for a (female) teacher into an obsessive jealousy. Unable to talk about it with anyone, she locks herself up in an inextricable situation. One hopes that the situation will ultimately resolve itself in a positive way, although everything points out towards a dramatic end.
Cleverly brings the position of the teacher into perspective
