Synopsis

A popular teacher with something to hide.A new principal determined to uncover the truth.A young mother, suddenly single, who struggles to rebuild her life.A grieving daughter who must learn to face the world again.A family forced to flee their homeland and start afresh.A small town can be a refuge, but while its secrets are held, it's hard to know who to trust and what to believe.The Teacher's Secret is a tender and compelling story of scandal, rumour and dislocation, and the search for grace and dignity in the midst of dishonour and humiliation. Watch our live interview with Suzanne below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSTBrNTfMfU
