After a teenage boy named Will Robinson took his own life, music therapist Tom Sweitzer set out to write a rock opera to help encourage teens to reach out for help and support in difficult times. In an astounding act of courage, Will's own mother Ann-Charlotte Robinson agreed to help advise Tom in the writing process and eventually star in the stage production. Expanding on the award-winning short A MOTHER'S WILL, JUST LIKE WILL is a documentary that follows the cast as they prepare to take the stage for a sold-out performance at the legendary Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The film also interviews the cast and studies the ripple effects of positive change that are set in motion by the rock opera, both in the lives of the cast and in the lives of the audience members.
