Coming of Age Short Film:
Take place in the school year of 1989/ 90 in Tacoma, WA at the fictional Henry Lee Middle School.

It’s September 1989, the first day of the new school year at Henry Lee Middle School. Dalvin Matthews reunites with friends Kristian, Alex and Devon. Dalvin’s quest for his final year at Henry Lee is to Dee-Jay at the school dance and win the heart of the most popular girl at the school, Iesha Parker.

While Dalvin sets course on a shaky path toward obtaining his goals, he is constantly being reminded by his friends that his goal of being the DJ at the school dance and gaining the affection of the desired, Iesha Parker is far out of reach. Through the tough love guidance of the Band Instructor, Mr. Roberts, Dalvin gains confidence that allows him to defy the odds and complete his mission.
