Stuck at a crossroads in her personal life, it falls on Miss Stevens to chaperone three of her students — Billy, Margot and Sam — on a weekend trip to a drama competition. Exploring the fine line between being a grown up and being a kid, MISS STEVENS is about students becoming teachers and teachers coming to realize that the messiness of youth never really goes away.
