1969. Christmas Term and twelve year-old Stephen Fry isn't popular with his headmaster; his sweet tooth, extensive vocabulary and sharp wit regularly earn him six of the best.

Unhappy with the pitiful offerings of the tuck shop, Fry Secundus, as he's known, often ventures out of bounds to the village sweet shop. But when one trip to the confectioners too many catches up with young Stephen, and the headmaster threatens to exclude him from the Christmas festivities.

Fry's only hope lies with Bunce, the frightened new boy he's taken under his wing. Will Fry stoop so low as to blame his new friend?


Produced by Sprout Pictures.
