Synopsis: (Drama, Comedy) High school is a rite of passage for millions of Americans. Alyssa Bridgewater (Camryn Handler) is currently a Junior along with her best friend, Dee (Deanna Quintero). Alyssa lost her mother to a medical condition at the age of six, but her father (Kevin Siegelbaum) kept the truth from her until age ten. An only child and the one living memory of his wife, Bill thought it best to preserve what little innocence he could in Alyssa. Bill and Alyssa bond over their love of Shakespeare as he readies himself to reveal his own personal secret to his cherished daughter. With Dee at her side, Alyssa will need all the strength in the world to overcome the schoolyard bullying and what will be the most exasperating event of her life.
