Movie Info

Indianapolis has one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country. For adult learners Greg, Melissa and Shynika, finally earning their high school diplomas could be a life-changing achievement. Emmy award-winning director Andrew Cohn's absorbing documentary observes their individual pursuits, fraught with the challenges of daily life and the broader systemic roadblocks faced by many low income Americans.

  • Cohn's slickly edited verité-style storytelling lets each person's humanity rise to the top, just enough to mix expected poignancy with a simple clarity about the struggles of low-income, opportunity-challenged souls.

  • Feeling particularly relevant these days because of the ever-growing obstacles faced by less-educated people struggling for economic gains, the moving film depicts the American dream in action.

    Jun 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Cohn merely chronicles three unforgettable people, the kind who are imminently easy to root for, and allows us to realize that they're not that different from us or the legions like them trying to better themselves.

    Jun 9, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A movie about large setbacks and small triumphs, and the grit that takes you from one to the other.

    Jun 8, 2017 | Full Review…
  • We live in a culture that tends to give up for good on dropouts. Greg, Melissa, and Shynika are living proof that there's no expiration date on "back to school."
