Ultimately, you'll probably be left feeling for everyone involved, even the shooter himself, with basic humanity and decency prevailing above all else.

The story based on a real 911 call in the suburbs of Atlanta will make your heart pound... [Full review in Spanish]

The dynamic between actors Tarra Riggs and Bo Mitchell is authentic and humanistic as writer/director Reed Van Dyk allows the scene to take form one heartbreaking second after another.

Mar 7, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Quietly shocking. A formidable counterargument to the bombast from certain quarters about arming teachers in order to meet such violence with more violence.

The characters are complex and the acting superb.

Feb 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Writer-director Reed Van Dyk gives both actors remarkably meaty if not flashy roles and avoids the temptation for long monologues, which would kill any narrative tension.
