A teenage carer discovers a hidden talent for stand-up comedy.


Between being bullied at school, put upon by her overbearing boss at the local arcade and having to
look after her younger brother, sister and manic-depressive mother, life isn’t easy for Sarah Taylor [15]. 

However, when Sarah’s drama teacher channels her ferocious and volatile energies in to a stand-up
comedy routine for the graduation showcase, Sarah discovers that she may have a hidden talent.

As her love for comedy grows and the showcase draws nearer, the delicate balance in her life becomes
increasingly difficult to maintain. Little by little the walls start to close in, ultimately forcing her to choose
between her responsibilities as a carer and her newfound passion for comedy.
