In a faded hotel room in Scarborough, a couple is having an illicit weekend away. Amidst the peeling wallpaper, they laugh, quarrel and make love, but they don't dare go out. After all, at just fifteen years old, the boy is just a child...the other is one of his teachers. Then exactly the same scene is re-enacted word for word - but this time with a male teacher and a female pupil.
