Winning Feature Film: THE NEW SCHOOL by Evan R. Schullery


Northwood High School is in lockdown after gunshots are heard. Two months earlier, troubled teenager, Justin Koenig joins Carol O’Connell’s class. But Carol is made uneasy by her new pupil, which is made worse when a former colleague is fatally wounded in a Boston school. With Northwood staff and parents discussing whether teachers should be armed, Carol decides to take matters into her own hand. Applying to take a controversial training program, and getting a gun permit, Carol tries to convince colleague Heather of Justin’s fascination with the recent Boston shooting. However following an outburst, Carol is suspended, but soon pieces together clues that Justin is going to carry out a shooting. Rushing to the school, she accidentally shoots Heather in an effort to stop Justin. With Carol arrested, a shocked Justin dumps a bag from his locker.
