Fourth Grade

At a prestigious private elementary school, a practical principal and a drama teacher gather the parents of the 4th Grade students to discuss an alarming situation: a brick of marijuana found in the theatre class. To protect the school’s reputation, they need to expel the kid responsible for the weed.

Ten wealthy parents from Pacific Palisades, CA and Eddie, an outsider, whose daughter just won a scholarship arrive at the meeting. After an aggressive discussion, the principal and the drama teacher leave the room. Eddie promises to find a solution within one hour and save the day. Accusations, intrigue, and insults ensue as the parents try and protect their own children.

In an effort to calm the hostility and think more calmly, one of the parents proposes that they try a little of the weed themselves. In the process, fragile and obscure secrets are revealed, and perspectives begin to shift. The weed problem is exposed as hypocrisy, and heartfelt truths and camaraderie blossom.

After a poignant, hilarious, and intriguing journey, one of the parents realizes that the brick is actually just dry manure… There was never any weed to begin with.
