Margaret, a lonely and repressed teacher, begins a farcical affair with a moronic eighteen-year-old schoolboy; this sparks a relationship with her jealous female housemate Amanda, who uses a beautiful new arrival to the town, Kate, to inspire similar jealousy in Margaret. But Kate, who is perhaps best described by her favourite author as "a ticking time-bomb that could go off pop at any moment", pursues her own agenda. The bizarre and precarious situation that develops between the three women becomes more serious when the original affair is discovered by the school's headmaster. However, it is the obsession of a second boy that leads them into a far darker world.
