Storyline

On August 20, 2013, shortly after arriving to work at the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Georgia, Tuff (Braxton), the school's bookkeeper, was in the front office when Michael Hill (Trevor Morgan, Abducted), a young man with a history of mental illness, snuck in armed with an AK-47 and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. As the school went into lockdown, Tuff was left alone with Hill, who repeatedly threatened to kill everyone. Showing enormous courage and empathy, along with nerves of steel, Tuff convinced the gunman to surrender by using her own life struggles to connect with him. Tuff's faith in God guided her through the toughest moments of her life, ultimately preparing her for that fateful day in Georgia. Yaya DaCosta (Whitney) portrays Kendra Hendricks, the 911 operator relaying messages to police on the scene from Tuff.

Inspirational!
29 January 2018 | by abetterbrain137See all my reviews

The movie was much better than I had expected. It started out rather poorly, but quickly gained speed and showcased some of the best acting I've seen in a while. My only complaint is the change in the story surrounding the first gun fire and in particular, the negative way in which the custodial worker was depicted - slothful and rather ignorant. Why not stick to the way it really happened?? The scenes from the camera showed a well-dressed, professional cafeteria manager who was actually the person who was the target of the first gun fire. Why was this depiction of the custodian necessary? On the job, but sitting in the car with headphones listening to music, and later, dancing towards the school still wearing headphones. Not realistic at all!!
