Summary
When it comes to education in the inner city, it's worth remembering the age-old question of the tree falling in the forest. This film evokes a particularly heartbreaking version of that question as it examines the plight of Save Our Future, a tenuously funded Los Angeles charter school designed for at-risk teenage students. Viewers follow the school's founders, Charlotte Austin Jordan and her husband, Kenneth Jordan, on a journey filled with threats of closure, implacable red tape roadblocks, and mounting anxiety concerning the fate of dozens of youth for whom this is a last chance at a high school diploma. It's the battle of their lives, and they enlist the help of every stakeholder and supporter who will listen. But the earnest band of educators, parents, and students finally exhaust every means of survival available to them, leading back to that venerable riddle: When the school is finally forced to shut down, who will notice?
