      The trailer really captures the challenges of opening up a charter school. In addition, it shows the passion and commitment of everyone involved in the project. It is inspiring and nice to see people like Reyes Xavier who go to extremes to make their dreams a reality and to better our education system by opening charter schools. I am eager to see the completed film.

      You've made a really strong case for the hard work it took to make this charter school happen. My one question after seeing it was - what is the distinct focus of this school that will make it so much better for the kids in that area? Probably everyone does know that the public schools in the inner city don't give kids the education and care that they need, but I think a little explanation of this school would add to the strength of the trailer - I'm sure your film does that.
