Concord High is a transfer school - a last hope school for at-risk teens. Most of its students have histories of academic failure and trauma. This film follows them as they participate in a semester-long mindfulness-training program. The twist is that the students both helped to film the experience and conducted a scientific study - of their classmates! - comparing the effects of mindfulness training with that of a placebo group. Working as research assistants for scientists from Harvard and Hunter College, they posed the question: Would practicing mindfulness for just three minutes a day help their classmates learn to control their attention and emotions? Said one reformed skeptic: Even though you can't change most of what happens in life, you can change your mind.
