Storyline

'Paper Tigers' chronicles a year in the life of Lincoln High School in the community of Walla Walla, Washington. The kids who come to Lincoln have a history of truancy, behavioral problems and substance abuse. After Lincoln's principal is exposed to research about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), he decides to radically change the school's approach to discipline. With the aid of diary camera footage, the film follows six students. From getting into fights, grappling with traumatic events in their lives, and on the cusp of dropping out, they find healing, support and academic promise at Lincoln High. Written by Anonymous

Paper Tigers is a documentary that gave a voice to individuals who are easily ignored and written off. This documentary causes you to think and gain insight into the lives of these brave individuals. I found myself committing to these students and respecting them to being vulnerable, raw, transparent, and open, and closed. The staff was explinary of displaying how significant of being the support system and village these students needed!!! I would highly recommend this as a must watch!!
