A look inside a tragedy through the eyes of a survivor. Based on actual events, April Showers is about picking up the pieces in the direct aftermath of school violence. Set in a middle class suburban neighborhood, April Showers focuses on the lives of a handful of teachers and students as they attempt to make sense of a world that has just been turned upside down by one of their own. With the community and an entire nation caught up in the 'story', the students of Jefferson High must turn to one another for answers. In the wake atrocity, the rifts caused by misinformation and a frenzied media prove difficult to overcome. Lost and lonely under the international spotlight, one young man navigates his way through his almost indiscernible home. From quaint suburban town to battlefield turned media circus, Jefferson High provides the backdrop for Sean's struggle to cope with the loss of his friend April.Written by

The shooters last name, Harris, is an obvious reference to Columbine Massacre assailant Eric Harris. His first name, Ben, may possibly be a reference to the other Columbine shooter Dylan Klebold whose middle name was Bennet. See more »
If it didn't make you cry, you certainly have something wrong ...
I decided to watch this movie only because i was sort of doing a research on School shootings these days. However, starting from the very first moment, this movie depicts intense situations in a man's life where the brain definitely doesn't work, a time when you have to make a quick decision as if you want to run for your life or stay back to save others, you will see people doing both of these.
And then, how would it feel to lose the loved one, whom you couldn't even tell that you love her, when such an intense feeling of extreme love is abolished not by separation, not by successful rivals, but by death! An easy way to test your emotional factor, if it didn't make you cry even once, you certainly lack emotions..
