Storyline

It is the late 1950's: The cold war is in full swing, school desegregation is in its infancy, and the nuclear bomb looms over every American's head. During a citywide civil defense drill, three sixth-grade boys become increasingly worried as the drill lasts longer than previous ones. Tensions mount when an air raid siren unexpectedly blares, and from the intercom, the principal orders everyone to move into the hall. Oblivious to events outside, hundreds of scared children are instructed to take cover along the hallway walls. All becomes quiet until the distinct sound of airplane engines approaches. A quiet terror overtakes the children. Written by Anonymous

excellent work
30 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i thoroughly enjoyed this film, it was very well written; Joel Davenport should move to Hollywood to teach film makers how to write. It shouldn't be hard for Joel to succeed in future works, because he pays so much attention to detail. Every character is well developed, as well as the setting/time period and each scene. Each change in the scenery is seamless; the entire film is convincing. I would like to see more movies where this much care has been taken to pursue an idea. This film was created by a student as student work, but looks to be the work of a professional. This film has more substance than most of the popular movies on the market today.
