Inspired by incredible but true events, Carte Blanche is the uplifting story of a charismatic high school history teacher named Kacper (Andrzej Chyra) who hides his worsening blindness from everyone around him in order to fulfill his educational duties. Kacper’s methods are unorthodox, sometimes hilarious, and fiendishly effective. Carte Blanche is a tribute to human perseverance and dignity.
