The documentary, which premiered at Sundance, is about the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre and how a small & resilient community pulled together to make something good come out of something very tragic. The documentary will have its broadcast premiere on PBS’s Independent Lens on April 3rd. It will also be available on various streaming platforms.
