Provocative coming-of-age drama based on Arthur Miller's The Crucible. The Award-winning film was written, directed and starring Quinn Shephard ('The Miseducation of Cameron Post') and is also starring Nadia Alexander ('The Sinner', 'The Dark') and Chris Messina ('Sharp Objects', 'The Mindy Project'). It's the start of a new year at a small suburban high school. Abigail (Quinn Shephard) is an outcast who seeks solace in the worlds of the characters she reads about, much to the amusement of her manipulative classmate, Melissa (Nadia Alexander). When an intriguing new drama teacher (Chris Messina) casts Abigail over Melissa in Arthur Miller's The Crucible, Abigail's confidence blooms, and soon her relationship with Jeremy begins to move beyond just fantasy. Melissa, fuelled by vengeful jealousy, begins to spiral out of control and concocts a plot against Abigail. This triggers a chain of events that will come to affect everyone around them, as well as reveal some dark truths.
