High school is where life starts to get serious. You are becoming the person you were meant to be, and you dream about what you will do. Forty years later -- almost a lifetime -- what happened? Did things work out the way you imagined? Are you where you want to be? And after all that time -- who are you? How are you doing in the performance of your life?
Filmmaker John Sanborn made discoveries by attending his 40th high school reunion with a film crew to interview former classmates, find answers to those questions, and gain a measure of closure. The result is a highly personal video memoir that blends interviews with contemplations and meditations on the unpredictable challenges and life-altering transformations fifteen graduates from Walt Whitman High School faced in the years before they all met again.
And to show us, ultimately, that life is a long list of things.
