A week before her college graduation, April Chen, a Chinese-Canadian tech prodigy, is accused of plagiarism by an unrelenting teaching assistant and must fight to prove her innocence in a secret trial held before an academic tribunal. As the day progresses, the motives and interests of all parties concerned are slowly exposed to reveal a complex web of corruption, greed and moral failings.
Written and Directed by: Li Dong
Starring: Celine Tsai, Jonathan Keltz, Mpho Koaho
"Dong understands leaving the audience wanting, and his debut is a sure handed, well produced and sharply shot little drama that drills deeply and believably into often crass human behavior."
"To me...it reminded me of A Few Good Men...much like Aaron Sorkin's military masterclass. Stealing School is pressure cooker full of twists and big speeches..."
"Stealing School opens a window into anti-Asian prejudices so they (the audience) can be subtly subverted by the end of the movie."
