Based on an actual incident in Atlanta, GA, DeKalb Elementary is a tense yet poignant story of a troubled young man who enters the DeKalb school office with a rifle in hand. See how this too-common scenario plays itself out from inside the office, and experience the vulnerability of mental illness, the fear of those trapped, and ultimately the compassion and heroism that helps bring the situation to its resolution.
