Nina is 14. All she wants to do is to fall in love with a cardigan-wearing tree frog expert, decide on her perfect theme song and avoid her dad's trigonometry lessons. But when her friend Ailsa goes missing and the police turn up at school, everything is turned upside down and inside out... Reuniting the director and one of the stars of hit show The Fair Intellectual Club (**** Scotsman, Herald, Stage, Telegraph) for a compelling, haunting story about friendship, family and secrets. Directed by Marilyn Imrie and starring Samara MacLaren. 2018 Assembly (ART) Award shortlist.
