Lois is the quiet type, Cerys is a complete extrovert and Hywel is an evangelist trying to live up to his parents' high expectations. Before long, Lois has fallen for bad news' Daniel and is experimenting with drugs and Cerys, egged on by the notorious 'fat slags' has embarked on a dangerous affair with her married lecturer. Full of black humour and dangerous spirit, Freshers is a tale of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, of leaving home and of finding a whole new world.'
