Directed by Isara Krieger (USA, 2023, 87 min.).

Hopeful Boston Public School students are given a chance to dramatically alter their paths through an alternative school year. The journey they embark on is longer than they could ever imagine: the goal is to access the promising futures that the most elite education spaces provide, but what will be the cost? As high school seniors, four years later, the students revisit their journeys and reflect on that question.
