Synopsis

Grief, lies and guilt send 17-year-old New Yorker Lisa into a destructive moral crisis in this thought-provoking coming-of-age drama. A film that explores how emotionally and physically difficult it can be to do the right thing, it sees the privileged high schooler inadvertently cause a fatality when a bus driver she distracts ploughs his vehicle into a pedestrian. After the victim dies in her arms, Lisa conceals the truth about the accident to protect herself and the driver. However, her dishonesty eats away at her, damaging her daily life and relationships. Soon Lisa figures the only way she can find peace is by making the driver pay for his negligence, but it proves easier said than done.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
