The Bad Kids Trailer (2016)

Trailer for The Bad Kids.

In a remote desert community, Black Rock Continuation High School offers an oasis for at-risk students confronting challenges well beyond their years. Facing addiction, abuse and early parenthood, these young people stand at a crossroads: complete their high school educations or risk falling into a cycle of poverty. Every day the indefatigable principal, Vonda Viland, acts as a one-woman support system, offering wake-up calls, transportation to school and personal counselling to scores of students who would otherwise go neglected. We follow several students who are poised for success but who teeter on the edge of dropping out and surrendering to external pressures. Despite overwhelming odds, Black Rock offers the tools they need to push through. A skillful work of slice-of-life filmmaking, both gripping and emotionally raw, this Sundance Award winner presents urgent issues with singular insight and sensitivity.
