Director's Statement

This film was inspired by my family member, a school counselor, and her surreal stories of active shooter response drills. Through mockumentary realism, I wanted to explore the proposed idea of arming classrooms with guns and how it would truly impact the daily life of students and teachers involved. Even with the proper paperwork, training, and best intentions, no human or machine is infallible.
