They were just regular high-school students — playing sports, studying for finals, goofing off, dancing and dreaming. And then, on Feb. 14, 2018 in just seven minutes, everything changed. In the aftermath of the nightmarish shooting that took 17 lives, the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida became something else: traumatized, angry and imbued with unalloyed purpose. Kim Snyder’s remarkable film follows the teens on their journey of political activism and growth after the indelible shooting in a coming-of-age story that manages to be equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful.
