This TV movie redraws with neatness the development of a rumour and the devastation which it causes. Without Manicheanism, he wonders about the function of teacher and the relations which can be formed between bosses and pupils, maintaining of the blow a double suspense, on the innocence or the fault of Paula, and on the motivations of her indicters. Flashsbacks, about which we know if they recover from the truth or the fantasies of the teenagers, maintains the illness. The psychological analysis is subtle and the end demiteinte: even if justice is returned, nothing will be more as before.

Accused of corruption of a minor, she asks a renowned lawyer, Owen Turner, to assure her defence. He doesn't succeed in understanding why Garrett, Paul and Stewart accuse her, nor why the parents of the pupils, those of Kip in head, show such a vindication. It will be necessary for the subtle lawyer all its sharpness of analysis to sort out between the lies and the truth.
