Annabelle, a precocious Senator's daughter who falls in love with her teacher Simone at a stodgy Catholic girls boarding school. Inspired by the classic lesbian drama "Maedchen in Uniform", out writer-director Katherine Brooks unveils this passionate tale of forbidden love with intelligence, wit and sensitivity. Simone Bradley is Saint Theresa's prized young poetry teacher who finds peace and security within the boarding school walls. Surrounded by a lush atmosphere with little conflict, Simone has settled into a life of comfort and purpose educating her young female students. Annabelle is a charismatic and enchanting new student who quickly draws attention for her rebellious behavior. Fearing Annabelle will influence the other students, the rigid headmistress, instructs Simone to keep an eye on Annabelle and get her under control. Simone, however, quickly learns that the real challenge is not Annabelle's behavior but the attraction budding between the two. As Annabelle pursues her teacher, she unleashes the passion that has been locked deep inside Simone, who must decide whether or not to enter an affair that could cost her everything.
