In an austere and remote all girls boarding school, the most elite clique of girls are the illustrious members of the schools' diving team. Di (Juno Temple), Lily (Ellie Nunn), Poppy (Imogen Poots), Laurel (Adele McCann), Rosie (Zoe Carroll) and Fuzzy (Clemmie Dugdale) are the envy of their fellow pupils who watch on as the girls compete for the attention of their glamorous teacher Miss G (Eva Green). Miss G in turn thrives on the attention she receives from her girls and believes it is her role to teach them the ways of the world.
As Team Captain, Di is closest of all the girls to Miss G but her position is challenged when a beautiful Spanish girl, Fiamma (Maria Valverde), arrives at the school and joins the diving team. Di, pulls rank as team captain and lays down the rules in an attempt to assert her position but MISS G is spellbound by Fiamma's beauty and maturity and becomes obsessed with her new favourite girl.
Jealous of Fiamma, the girls bully her and hound her out of the school, but Fiamma reluctantly has to return, so the girls are forced to try and get along and eventually they too begin to warm to her. In an attempt to put their differences aside, the diving team and Fiamma plan a secret midnight party to celebrate the feast of St Agnes - a ritualistic celebration that is both innocent and erotic. In high spirits, the girls' lives will be changed forever, as Miss G interrupts the evening and takes a drunken Fiamma away to her room...
CRACKS, directed by Jordan Scott, is written by Ben Court & Caroline Ip and Jordan Scott, and was filmed on location in Ireland and at Pinewood Studios, London.
