Synopsis

Rural Great Britain in the Thirties. Miss G is a teacher at a private school for girls. She is more youthful and glamorous than her colleagues, and enjoys dropping hints of a free-spirited past. Miss G encourages her students to challenge conventional norms. But things change for both Miss G and her students when a Spanish girl enrolls at the school, who has a strong independent streak; she doesn't look to her peers for approval and insists on doing things her own way, which makes her exotic and appealing to the other students.
