On December 14, 2012, a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and shot 20 children aged between 6 and 7 years old, as well as six adult staff members. It’s the kind of horror that you hope one can’t even imagine, but it became a real life nightmare for the parents and families of the murdered children and school employees. Now a new documentary looks at how the small town is recovering a few short years later.
Newtown premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was acquired this past summer for a release this fall. Now the first trailer for the documentary has arrived, profiling the parents who lost their children in the vicious act, as well as a surviving teacher, one of the emergency room doctors who took care of the victims, and even some of the survivors who witnessed this tragedy firsthand.
