In near-future England, two girls are thrilled to be accepted into The Playground, the final stage of their education, but all is not as it seems. As their world crumbles, they cling to a story from the past: two friends in 1930s Germany attend riotous swing dances in defiance of authority. Forced into Hitler Youth, one becomes swept up in propaganda whilst the other cannot abandon their ideals. The talented young cast mix naturalistic storytelling, dance and physical theatre to intertwine these poignant stories, showing both the devastation and hope that youth can wield.
