It’s the day of the Trinity College Ball in Dublin and Brendan has a plan. He’ll spend the day studying for his Economics and Business exams in the library and then crash the ball in the evening to meet up with Helen, the girl he’s trying to impress. But when his revision doesn’t go quite as planned and he gets locked in, Brendan discovers an escape route out of more than just the library.
