This film follows the children at two Scottish schools as they prepare for and take part in the ritual of the prom/dance that marks the close of their lives at primary school. Through preparations for and participation in the dance itself we see into the world of today's 11 year olds. Most parents now believe that childhood is over by 11. Are they right? And how does your background and home life affect the pressures of growing up? It's 9pm, the sun still hasn't set, but the evening is drawing to a close. The kids cry, some wail. It's time to say goodbye to primary school.
