Set in the bowels of Tipperary exploring the world of peer pressure, violence in young women and the extremes young people will go to for attention. We follow Louise Fennessy, just one of 89
Transition year girls in her year, in St. Catherine’s Convent Secondary School which hosts 742 female students in total. Through her we encounter the nature of this powder keg environment in a culture where organized fights provide the on-site entertainment and the roughest of reputations instils respect.
