In a prestigious all-girls secondary school in Trinidad and Tobago, the Michaelmas term seeps with anxiety for all in their last year. Cyan, indecisive about her university choices, finds herself at odds with expectations of where she should go, why should she go and if it matters if she goes. However, as exams approach with expected dread, one by one, young girls are vanishing in the school grounds.
November/December screens as part of We Out Here: Shorts on Sunday, February 9 at 3:30 pm.
