Synopsis


"Under the law you are guilty, I would say, of a hate crime".


Afua, a black senior manager in a secondary school, is asked to investigate online comments by a white colleague, Tina; a woman she thought was a friend.


Do Tina's comments constitute hate speech, and, if so, should the police get involved?


Afua has always fought for women's rights, and Tina is a wronged woman, but with an axe to grind that even Afua is not prepared for.


In an intensely claustrophobic setting, the clash between the two women becomes increasingly explosive; opening up questions around speech, power, race and class, that perhaps modern Britain is not ready to answer.
