Try Harder!

At Lowell High School, the top public high school in San Francisco, the seniors are stressed out. As they prepare for the emotionally draining college application process, students are keenly aware of the intense competition for the few open spots in their dream colleges. At Lowell where cool kids are nerds, nearly everyone has an amazing talent, and most of the student body is Asian American the things that usually make a person stand out can feel commonplace.

"A very funny movie about a bunch of students trying to find their way through a system that is designed to keep them out rather than let them in." -Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
