Directed by Kim A. Snyder
“A shocking and compelling piece of work.”
—The Guardian

In this devastating documentary, community members of Newtown, Connecticut—police officers, parents, emergency responders, teachers—speak out on the grief and trauma that will weave them together forever. Given exclusive access to the homes of those who lost loved ones in 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, documentarian Kim Snyder captures intimate cycles of mourning and anger, coping and disbelief, electing to document the reverberations one act of violence can have on a town and its residents. This compassionate portrait suggests that while grief echoes far and wide, the collective conscience of this heartbroken town is also bonded by empathy, resilience, and hope.
