"Rich with detail and many touches. 'One of Us' is a moralist's delight...
There's room for actors to really enjoy the experience."
Judge's Comment, Paperscreenplay, 2022
Concerned that they might not get the best grades for the upcoming examinations, four boys at a boarding school decide to break into the storeroom where their exam papers are held. Then one of the boys locks the other three in, and leaves.
Betrayed and knowing they will get caught red-handed, the three incarcerated boys must face their own demons as well as their problems with each other.
‘One of Us’ is the screenplay adaptation of ‘Red-Handed’.
