Ah - middle school. Three years of Axe body spray, sagging pants and pre-algebra. Everything feels like the end of the world. There are a lot of emotions that come with being a pre-teen and those emotions all come to a head at the middle school dance. What happens when you put a bunch of sweaty, hormonal kids in a room together for two and a half hours? Absolute chaos. It seems like nobody has fond memories of this time and even if they do exist, people are hesitant to talk about them. Why are we like this? What happened? Does middle school really have that much of an impact on a person's life? This documentary hopes to reexamine this time period, its ups and downs, and maybe allow us to laugh at ourselves a little bit. We conducted interviews with college students as well as current middle schoolers about their experiences, which were then reenacted for the camera.
