Directed by Kim A. Snyder, Newtown examines the aftermath of one of the most tragic and horrifying events in recent American history – the killing of 20 children between the ages of six and seven, and six adults, in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Over the span of close to three years, Snyder follows three of the parents whose lives were torn upside-down by the event, as they grapple with their new realities and share their stories, while also integrating the experiences of others affected by the senseless killings in what is ultimately a story of resilience.
