On December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School lost 20 children and six adults at the hands of a mass shooter. Hoping to help with the healing process, a theatrical production of A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to Newtown, CT, and holds auditions for boys and girls to be a part of a pop-rock version of the classic play. This documentary from director Lloyd Kramer explores the community's collective grief as they prepare for the musical's opening night.
