Surviving Sandy Hook

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

This documentary follows three Newtown families as they rebuild their lives after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. Over a year, we follow families of victims, and survivors. Some are taking the lead in community healing, others advocate for a change in gun laws; all are seeking healing. In their journey, some venture out of their ‘safe’ suburban community with new eyes:- engaging with black urban America; youth from all walks of life coming together to make change; gun proponents; prisoners incarcerated for violent crimes. This film shows the audience how even amidst such a horrific event, people find a way to survive, and brings a unique perspective to the ongoing gun debate.
A film about grief, hope, love and guns.
