Blue Jean

England, 1988 – Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government are about to pass a law stigmatising homosexuality, forcing Jean, a PE teacher, to live a double life. 

As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new girl at school catalyses a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core.
