Stanley, a naive first year drama student meets Isolde and begins a sweet, first love affair. Goaded by Hannah, the charismatic, domineering Head of Acting, Stanley uncovers a talent and ambition he didn’t know he had. When his group hits on a sex scandal that involves Isolde’s tennis prodigy sister as fertile material for their end-of-year show, Stanley finds himself profoundly torn.

More Whiplash than Fame, Kerry Fox leads an ensemble cast in this drama school drama in a return to filmmaking by Alison Maclean.
