It's the Easter holiday at Gorse Park Preparatory School, and everyone has gone home except for four elderly members of staff and young Paul Blake (Graham McGrath), the orphaned son of the former headmaster. The weather is fine, the countryside beautiful, but all is far from peaceful. As the adults fall out over the future of the school, Paul struggles against both unjust authority and the changes to his growing body, but finds reconciliation with the help of his elderly friend, Mr. Maitland ('Matey').
