A lockdown drill catches five grade 12 students by surprise and throws them together in the only unlocked room, which just so happens to be the boy’s bathroom.
Told in five unique voices through conversation, poetry, text messages, journals, photographs, and homework assignments –each student reveals pieces of their true story as they wait for the drill to end.
Alice is the introverted writer who has to take care of her autistic brother Noah.
Isabelle is the smart and popular student council president.
Hogan is an ex - football player who has had his fair share of trouble.
Xander is the socially awkward yearbook photographer.
However, things change for the group when it is realized the lockdown is not a drill and that one of them knows more about the shooter than they all realized.
