Is the American Dream still alive for those willing to sacrifice for it?
The absorbing documentary, which took home both the Grand Prize and Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 2016 Heartland Film Festival, observes three Indianapolis-based adult students as they work to earn their high school diplomas, confront their fears about education and improve their lives. Following students with significant personal challenges, Night School is not just a film about adult education, but an intimate look at the roadblocks facing many underprivileged individuals as they attempt to move upward in society.
