Fiscal Sponsee - Detention


When four high schoolers get “Saturday Detention,” they quickly realize things just got a whole lot worse when their waste-of-time detention turns into a bit of a nightmare … group therapy! Forced to share their most personal and traumatic stories by a sleep-deprived, postpartum therapist with extreme mood swings, the kids soon find themselves tip-toeing around her, so as not to unleash the beast. We get a glimpse into each kid’s family situation, along with the practical, emotional and psychological challenges each of them faces. This is a sensitive, empathetic and realistic story about growing up that has humor, conflict, heartbreak, and romance. It is both surprising and uplifting. Detention is a modern day Breakfast Club with a deeper dive into the hardships of home life.
