From writer/director Andrew Robinson comes a tremendously personal look inside one of our nation?s great tragedies, as seen through his eyes as a survivor. Based on actual events, "April Showers" is about picking up the pieces in the direct aftermath of one of America?s growing epidemics: school violence.

As an active student at the school, Andrew was friends with many of those lost and forever affected by the tragedy. His film, "April Showers," is set to be released in April of ?09, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the incident.

At the age of 13, Andrew and his family relocated to Littleton, Colorado, from Omaha, Nebraska, where he would eventually attend Columbine High School. The morning of April 20th 1999 forever altered his future. Following the tragic shooting that left 15 dead and many more wounded, Andrew committed himself to be with his grieving friends and family. "April Showers" marks Robinson?s second feature-length effort.

"April Showers" is an honest look at the events of April 20th, 1999, though ?universal? via composite characters and a fictionalized school. "This can happen anywhere, and indeed it has. Finland, Virginia Tech ... where does it end?" asks a thoughtful Robinson.

Set in a middle class suburban neighborhood, "April Showers" focuses on the lives of a handful of teachers and students as they attempt to make sense of a world that has just been turned upside down by one of their own. With the community and an entire nation caught up in the breaking events, the students of Jefferson High must turn to one another for answers.

In the wake of such atrocities, the rifts caused by misinformation and a frenzied media prove difficult to overcome. Lost and lonely under the international spotlight, one young man navigates his way through his almost indiscernible home. From quaint suburban town to battlefield turned media circus, Jefferson High provides the backdrop for Sean?s struggle to cope with the loss of his friend April.

Currently in preproduction, the film is slated to shoot June 2008 in Omaha, Nebraska.

"April Showers" is produced by April Wade of Women on Top Productions and Jenna Edwards, and executive produced by Joel Eisenberg, Eugene Mandelcorn and Tim Owens, collectively "EMO Films."
