Abstract:

Depicts students at a Portland, Oregon high school before and during a tragic school shooting. Follows a young boy who takes over the wheel from his drunken dad while returning from lunch. Then follows another student who crosses paths with the first, then the other of the two boys in camouflage gear, carrying heavy bags, who arrive inside the school and begin shooting. No explaination for the shooting is given, it simply places the audience in the interminable window of adolescences when life is both trivial and painfully important all at the same time.
