CLASSROOM – DAY About 30 9-year-old BLACK AFRICAN CHILDREN sit atdilapidated desks in the small, muggy room. They lookattentively to the front of the room. We hear a WOMAN’SVOICE.

A BOY looksat his paper when it’s handed to him – 100 percent – thensmiles up at the woman.REVERSE and we see that the French-speaking woman is Portia Addams. She’s dressed in rumpled khakis and a t-shirt and wears no makeup, but she’s still as beautiful as weremember. Finished returning papers, she’s back at thehead of the classroom. She smiles at the children, whoclearly adore her.
