The aftermath of a fatal school explosion uncovers more than blame.

In this tense drama, a chemistry class explosion at a Manhattan high school throws troublemaker Matty Fairchild into a coma. During an out-of-body experience, he witnesses an investigation that unravels a deeper side to the explosion. Tensions explode between parents and teachers as they navigate through shock and guilt. Matty’s friends and classmates battle trauma as they grapple with the question, “What if that were I?” The film shows emotional, multi-layered characters who must tackle the “what if” questions with which they torture themselves. – Kady Le
