San Pedro High School in Los Angeles has one of the highest drop-out rates in Southern California. Docs Rock, a unique program that exposes students to documentary filmmaking, tries to fight the negative statistics by preparing students for college and employment through project-based learning.

Docs Rock is a joint effort combining the Los Angeles Unified School District, the International Documentary Association, and the Department of Cultural Affairs for the City of Los Angeles.

This film was commissioned by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for their program on public education.
