Atlantic Sarah and David are in love - the obsessive, uncertain love of teenagers on the edge of adulthood. They have just started their first term at a performing arts school, where the rules are made by their magnetic drama instructor. Enclosing his students in a rarefied bubble where performance is everything, Mr Kingsley initiates them into a dangerous game that blurs the boundary between teacher and students. Two decades on we learn that what we were told about these teenagers' lives is not completely true, but not completely false either. The real story surrounding Sarah, David and their fellow students is larger and darker than we imagined, and the consequences have lasted a lifetime.
