When naïve young schoolteacher Ruth is sent by her employers to Damocles Priory to learn how to administer punishment, she has no idea that the emphasis will be on practical experience. After her initial reluctance, she allows the masterful clergyman Reverend Mould to help her live out her submissive fantasies and to explore her most perverse desires.
Damocles Priory is not all it seems to be, however, and the lewd reverend is taking an unusually personal interest in Ruth's education. Will she learn to take the upper hand before it is too late?
