The truth is what you want it to be. Bryan Young is an unconventional and challenging teacher in a junior school, popular with the pupils, but at odds with the head teacher, his deputy, and the school priest. Bryan's world is shattered when he is falsely accused of sexual misconduct by three female pupils, and a parent. He is suspended from school and subject to a police and internal investigation. His previous behaviour is now misinterpreted and moulded to fit the accusations against him, including those made by a colleague he trusted. But Bryan's behaviour has also contributed to the accusations - and he is faced with the choice of revealing the truth of what happened, but at the cost of destroying his professional credibility, and his relationship with his partner and their child.
