PlotEdit

Eighteen years after the events of Gregory's Girl, Greg Underwood (Sinclair) – now a 35-year-old English teacher in his former secondary school – has fantasies about 16-year-old student Frances (McKinnon). His politically motivated lessons inspire Frances and Douglas, another student, to plot to overthrow a businessman they suspect of trading in torture equipment.
