A bright sunny afternoon in november. It is wind-down time after gym class for the 2nd graders. Michael and eleven other children lie side by side on the floor of the gym, breathing quietly. Suddenly, a detonation tears the silence.
The gym teacher immediately understands that he now bears the life-and death responsibility to lead the children to safety. He manages to hide them in his office. But as the shooter enters the gymnasium, Michael realizes he might know the shooter, and sneaks out…
The gym teacher will now have to risk everything, including his own life, to keep Michael safe.
