A group of struggling yet determined public high school teens enroll in a groundbreaking, semester-long course in Mindful Studies that changes their lives in unexpected ways.  "Class of 2020" is an experiential feature documentary that chronicles the inspiring journey of these teens as they forge connections with each other and learn how to help themselves overcome the intense pressures of high school. At its core, this powerful story is not just about teens learning self-awareness tools or a wildly successful school program, but about the untapped potential of a trained mind and the implications for us all.

"Class of 2020" focuses on a program at the high school level; yet, these teens are truly a microcosm of the larger population. People of all walks of life who struggle to stay afloat in deeply troubling waters will be inspired to see how our characters learn to navigate these channels with grace, humility, empathy and compassion for themselves and others. This film offers life-lessons for everyone.
