A portrait of Joanne Sally, former Miss Northern Ireland, an artist, teacher and professional boxer. Fujiwara got to know her during his time at Harrow School, a distinguished English school for boys, where she promoted and lastingly shaped his artistic talent. Years later, when private nude photos of Sally were discovered and circulated by some students, she became the focus of a defamatory media campaign that destroyed her reputation. Five years after the scandal, the film tries to draw a more complex picture of her.
