A haunting, futuristic drama.

Teenagers in the future are obedient, polite, and respectful. This is due in large part to the government-required "Observation Sessions." But there is a dark underside to this utopian vision.

After learning her brother is scheduled to be "observed," one of the most obedient students starts to question the system. She must decide whether to remain obedient or speak out and face the consequences.
