Synopsis

Noele Gordon (Nolly to her friends) was a TV legend in the UK, gaining success and fame with her portrayal of Meg Richardson in the British soap opera Crossroads. Then in 1981, at the height of her series' success and the height of her fame, she was unceremoniously, unannounced and without explanation fired. Gordon thus found herself thrown off the show that had been her life for over 18 years. Nolly investigates the affair of the British actress as an emblematic case of how the ruling class targets women who refuse to abide by the rules, women it cannot understand and women it fears.
