First Year, First Choice
is a one-hour, cinema verite documentary style that explores Alabama's attempt to dramatically improve the state's public education system through a brand new initiative requiring 2009-10 high school students to pursue a high-level diploma.  Through the lives of two teachers and students in economically disparate regions, First Year, First Choice is a window into the real-life struggles- in and out of the classroom- that a southern American community faces as they challenge the next generation to live up to their potential.
