The tragic aftermath of a high school shooting leaves Deanna Cartwright (Erika Christensen) seriously wounded and nine others dead. Det. Martin Van Zandt (Victor Garber) is assigned the unenviable task of finding someone to hold responsible. His attention settles on Alicia Browning (Busy Philipps), a troubled outsider considered both the key witness and a possible suspect.
Worlds collide when Alicia's high school principal compels her to pay a reluctant visit on the still-hospitalized Deanna. United by their traumatic experience, the two young women form an unlikely friendship -- one that will be tested by depression, despair, and the growing weight of the police investigation.
HOME ROOM is an uncompromising look at lives in crisis and the redemptive power of friendship. Focusing on the universal themes of grief and healing, the film presents an intimate portrait of those who must pick up the pieces of a shattered world.
