LOGLINE / SYNOPSIS

Mackenzie is a high school student who seems to have everything going for her, but beneath the surface she struggles. Through her personal story, she shares how the education system has created an environment leaving herself and peers feeling anxious, depressed and that their worth is nothing more than a test score. Her love of learning is suppressed while cramming for seemingly meaningless tests and assignments. Even as a high performing water polo player who thrives on competition, Mackenzie feels that, in school, a line has been crossed where the pressure and fear students feel can be unhealthy, even dangerous.
