The adopted daughter of a religious woman begins school where she unnerves other students with her wild talk. Her relationship with another girl student falls under the scrutiny of her mother who believes the devil is at work. Based on the novel by Jeanette Winterson.

Jess (Charlotte Coleman) is the adopted daughter of an over-enthusiastic evangelist (Geraldine McEwan), whose views on life have been shaped by Bible classes and religious radio shows. When Jess grows up she meets Melanie and their close friendship turns to passion - something that her horrified mother and local pastor believe is the work of the Devil, and they set out to take drastic action to save Jess from the evil temptation. This adaptation of Jeanette Winterson's bestselling novel won three BAFTA awards, including Best Actress (McEwan) and Best Drama Series.
