Show Details

In the wake of yet another mass shooting in the United States, an American town is left reeling by the death of Kayla Gordon. Her teacher, Mr. Naqvi, and her classmate Farid begin to bond in their common grief. But when Kayla’s parents approach with a sinister plan to seek retribution for her death, Mr. Naqvi’s beliefs are sorely tested as he is drawn into nothing less than a battle for the soul of his young student.
