Storyline

Set in the not so distant future, in Any Town USA, sixteen year old Herman Howards makes a fateful decision. He enters his suburban school and kills thirty nine students, two teachers, and a police officer. Just before his arrest he emails his idol, famous journalist Lax Morales, sending him clips of the shootings captured with Herman's own digital camera. In the clips Herman tells Lax, "I want to tell my story on your show". Lax, haunted by his own past, is now face to face with Herman. The movie explores why and how a massacre like this can happen in our society, desensitizing in America, youth violence and bullying, the impact the media has on our individual quest for fame, and ultimately our need for connection.

A must-see especially for parents. Great acting by the two leads, Reedus and Backstrom
29 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

The chemistry between the two leads (Reedus and Backstrom) was outstanding. They definitely played off each other and it worked. I also found Herman's mother's (Michelle Danner) monologue to be quite convincing and moving. The great acting is to be expected when a prestigious acting teacher is the director. I think this film is rather important for parents and teachers to see. I can see Danner being persuaded by many others to not make this movie since the subject matter is so controversial. Obviously in the movie, Herman gets bullied to an extent that he plots for revenge and lashes out on his fellow students through murder. This movie reminds us of how an innocent child can transform into a heartless killing machine through the abuse and bullying a child endures. Herman states to Lax that he is human. Everybody needs to be reminded that everybody in this world is human and we all have feelings we go through.
