The musical comedy GROUP! charts 'session 16' of a failing group therapy circle. With the arrival of a mysterious newcomer, the session gets out of control and – to their horror – actually becomes therapy.

This film contains content which some viewers may find distressing including overt references to suicide and depression, very strong language, satirical references to extremism and adult themes throughout.

If you are affected by any of the issues in this film, support and advice is available at or by phone on 116 123.
