Story Summary: For the seniors at Lamont Private School, there’s nothing but blue skies ahead as they prepare to head to college — that is until a mass shooting at a nearby school hits a little too close to home. With only a semester left until graduation, six student journalists explore the tragedy only to find that their relationships with issues like parental pressure, racism, immigration, religion, and mental health may affect their ability to make positive change. Tired of being silenced, these six friends have to decide if it's worth the sacrifice to move from reporting the news to creating it, risking their reputation and future in order to finally speak out about issues that really matter to them.
