On the first day of their drama degree, W and M are thrown together as scene partners. Their relationship soon progresses in a romantic haze of young love with all the usual ceremonies; meeting the families; going away together. They support each other through the stresses of their studies. They listen to each other. They respect each other. But on a night out in second year, drinks pour, and W gets drunk. M takes W back to her house, helps her undress and tucks her into bed, a ritual which is familiar to her. Only this time it's different. In the fallout that follows, W struggles to process what has happened to her. M is kind, generous and considerate to her. He loves her, and she loves him. The man she loves couldn't do something like this.
