When Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School drama teacher Melody Herzfeld heard the fire alarm on February 14, 2018, she was with her students in rehearsals for their annual children’s musical. Moments later, a Code Red sounded. Herzfeld rushed her 65 students into a storage closet while a shooter killed 17 teachers and students nearby. Filmed in the months following the shootings, while the Florida school community is grappling with the tragedy, Song of Parkland documents the dedication of teacher Melody Herzfeld and her theater students as they return to school and resolve to continue with their production. “This is our begin again. This is our start-over.… This is the most important show you’re going to do, ever,” she tells them. The touching documentary debuts one year after the attack.
