Emery isn’t happy at being paired up with her ex to tutor a class of 6 year olds. Jake feels awkward too, especially after she broke up with him after he kissed someone else. But when a student’s turns up with a gun, a bad situation for Emery and Jake suddenly turns deadly.
The boy’s father – a soldier home from Iraq – says he just wants to spend time with his kid. But resistance from the teacher has deadly consequences. The man isn’t afraid of opening fire, even in front of the children. And one way or another, he’s not leaving without his son.
A drama, a love story and a window into post traumatic disorder.
