It’s 1988, the film opens on the notes of “Blue Jean” by David Bowie, while Jean, in front of the mirror, dyes her hair. The Thatcher government has just approved “Section 28”, a law that prohibits homosexuality, considered as a “deviant” lifestyle. Jean, a gym teacher, is forced to lead a double life. During the week she is a respected member of the teaching staff, and at weekends she hangs out in Newcastle’s gay scene with her girlfriend Viv and a group of friends. Jean does everything to keep her public and private sides separate. But when at the lesbian bar she meets one of her students who is marginalized by her classmates, Jean is forced to make choices to safeguard her job and her mental state. A very difficult historical period for the lgbtq+ community told through the fears and courage of the protagonist.
