A short period drama set in the 1980s, we follow Fiona Butler, a timid weather girl who has worked at Global Broadcast Network for over 10 years, but her presence is still ignored. Through the chaos of a breaking news story, she must fight against the male-dominated studio. Where she will be able to find her voice. This story deals with the underlying theme of sexism. We want to show a strong female lead coping under pressure and proving her peers wrong.
