Edinburgh, 1991. Having flunked her exams, eighteen-year-old Luisa McKenzie finds herself back at school – this time working as a classroom assistant. Instead of leading a new ‘sophisticated’ life as a student in London, she spends her days trundling to and from her childhood home, sitting on the outside of the ‘Home Corner’ in a class full of five-year-olds.A chance encounter one afternoon with Stella, a former schoolfriend who has, herself, gone on to ‘greater’ things, wakes Luisa up to her disappointments. With a school trip and a magic show on the horizon , Luisa’s hold on reality slowly begins to unravel .
