Storyline

Film adaptation of the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical by Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul about Evan Hansen, a high school senior with a severe Social Anxiety disorder, whose letter to himself, one that was not meant to be seen by others, lands into the wrong hands of a fellow classmate who, as a result, commits suicide. This incident sends Evan on a journey of self-discovery and gives him the chance to finally be accepted by his peers and live the life he never dreamed he could have. Written by Max Hechtman
