England, 1988 - Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatising gays and lesbians, forcing Jean, a gym teacher, to live a double life. As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new girl at school catalyses a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core.

Filmed in and around Tyneside this BAFTA award nominated film provides a dramatised version of Newcastle's 1980s lesbian scene - were you there?
