Alice Of HeartsDuration: 95 minutes | Cast: 4 women, 2 men

Sarah is a nineteen year old paraplegic whose parents return home early from a weekend away to discover her over the knee of a middle-aged man who is about to spank her. As a result, her mother attempts to take control of her life and get her involved in “healthy activities”. Things only get worse for Sarah from there: the man who was about to spank her rejects her, and a support worker obsessed with wheelchair basketball gets her involved with a gender studies tutor at the university, who is determined to use Sarah to get an anti-pornography debate onto the public agenda. The only thing they all have a common is that they think they know what is best for Sarah, and that it’s wrong to spank a paraplegic. Is it?
