Rating and Content Advisory


It’s 1988 in England and Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass Section 28, a law that prohibits the promotion of homosexuality. For Jean, a gym teacher, a law stigmatizing gays and lesbians adds an additional layer to her ongoing struggle to live her life openly. As she attempts to lead a double life, pressure mounts between her and her out and proud partner. As the issues intensify on all sides, the arrival of a new student catalyzes a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core.
