Debutante is a short drama set in the community of Irish Jehovah's Witnesses. 18-year-old Meg is struggling to reconcile her heartfelt commitment to the religion with the growing pain of shunning her father, a disfellowshipped member of the congregation. An evening alone with her boyfriend Sam, an equally devoted young Witness, turns into an emotional and sexual transgression. What follows is in turns cruel, violating and absurd judicial committee hearing, where three well-meaning congregation elders shatter her carefully constructed world.
