This compassionate account lends an ear to a traumatized community fractured by grief and driven toward a sense of purpose. Each person, be they a parent, school nurse, or state police officer, tries in their own way to make sense of their loss. Together they form an intimate story of community resilience. They speak candidly about their grief, anger, and disbelief over what occurred and confront our nation’s inability to quell gun violence in even the most peaceful of communities.

“The film’s brilliance—and hope—lies in its ability to internalize profound grief and allow it to reverberate within our collective conscience.” – Sundance Institute

“Arguably the most timely festival film this year.” – Entertainment Weekly
