    An Australian comedy-drama series about Olympia "Oly" Chalmers-Davis, an overachieving 17-year-old student who knows exactly where she's going. Oly and her best friend Reema share an ambitious 10-year plan: top grades, international relations at a university, work for the U.N. and save the world. But an unplanned pregnancy changes everything. Blindsided and in deep shock, Oly rejects the baby entirely. If she doesn't acknowledge the baby, then she doesn't have to acknowledge how her life has irrevocably changed, or that the baby's father is not her boyfriend's.



    From engagement parties to team-building weekends to improv comedy, The Feather in the Web is an unpredictable take on infatuation and self-discovery.
