Anatomy of a School Shooting

Anatomy of a School Shooting
Exactly four students were absent from Lord Stanley High school the day that an unidentified shooter snuck into the school and opened fire on two students. Since the police believe that the shooter was a student, each of the four teens who was absent on the day of the shooting is now seen as a suspect.

Youth pastor Jackie Ford is reluctantly dragged into the situation at the school when she makes it known that she is acquainted with all four of the suspects. Asked by the police to do two things- spend time with the students in question, and report any significant findings- Jackie sets out to befriend the four teens. As Jackie and the students- now bound by the common threads of rejection and hostility from their peers- become closer, they discover that they all have more in common than they might have suspected, that each of them harbours hidden needs and secrets, and that perhaps they can be one another’s salvation.

But which one of the students is the shooter?
