    “At a remote Mojave Desert high school, extraordinary educators believe that, more than academics, it is love, empathy and life skills that give at-risk students command of their own futures. This coming-of-agestory watches education combat the crippling effects of poverty on the lives of these so-called “bad kids.””

    Immediately following the screening, one of the film’s editors, University of Arizona Professor Jacob Bricca, along with Dawn Penich Thacker, communications director for Save Our Schools Arizona, will discuss prioritizing education in Arizona.
