All the teenagers from Clanstow flock to Jason Davidson's eighteenth birthday party. But when a teenage girl is murdered near the bathroom admits the celebrations, emotions begin to run high within the small-knit community.

School student Nick Waters mysteriously tries to frame someone else for the girls murder, by planting corrupting evidence and manipulating those around him. When Claire Warren discovers this, she attempts to stop him and as they both go head to head, the stage is set for a dramatic showdown where not everyone will survive.

EXTRACT: Ever since I got out of that mental hospital, I had one thing to do – bring Adrian down. It was just my luck when Jason accused him of being with Olivia. I saw opportunity in that. So just after his little fight with Adrian, I went back to the party and I saw Jason chasing Olivia outside. So I followed them – it was empty. Everyone was either inside or at the front. Jason had taken a torchlight with him and when he got to the bathroom, he grabbed Olivia by the arm. I watched the whole thing.
