At the heart of this drama is the dangerous relationship between a university professor Leah, and her student Rose, when - what begins as a seemingly open and shut case of academic deception - quickly spirals out of control, ending in fatal consequences, and triggering a devastating sequence of events that threaten to engulf them both.

Dr Leah Dale has always prided herself on her academic integrity, and so when undergraduate Rose Vaughan submits a suspiciously brilliant essay, Leah is quick to call her out.

A war starts between the two women when Rose takes Leah's challenge as a personal affront and pursues a course of retaliation against her professor, while Leah becomes entirely consumed with trying to expose her student as a cheat.
