PRU is a comedy about a group of teens navigating the pitfalls of adolescence in a Pupil Referral Unit, a school for excluded kids. It is told through the eyes of four gloriously reckless young people who can't help but say the unsayable and do the undoable.

Halil, Sienna, Jaden and Belle are four very different 15 year-olds, with one thing in common. They've all been perm'd. Now, teetering on the edge of the education system, they're negotiating Year 10 together at their local PRU.
