South Wales, 1976. An outsider in her own school, drama teacher Vivienne (Driver) tries to tap the talent in her young charges by putting on a musical interpretation of Shakespeare's The Tempest. The gifted teens, sensitive Davey (Barnard) among them, have their eyes on other prizes though.
There's lo-fi charm in the musical numbers and heartfelt turns from the young cast but the story drifts along without offering much that we haven't seen before.
