DON OF VIRGIL JR. HIGH, THE cover image
Donald is a 12-year-old African-American junior high math team nerd sitting in the principal's office. His voiceover begins the story with the theme of power, bullying, hottie vs. plain. The film starts out in the cafeteria where the strata of jock and geek are clearly defined and the geeks are banned to sit on a pile of rocks at lunchtime. The screenplay takes this well-used theme of ridicule and creates interesting challenges with diverse characters providing a story with layered lessons from which adults could learn. I give this screenplay 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Juror #11.

Based off the multi-award winning short film, and set in the early 1990's, during the golden era of Hip-Hop and Alternative Rock music: DONALD, a nerdy Junior high school kid, goes on a mission to gain popularity by any means necessary. He eventually succeeds and creates a band of geeks and outcasts, whom are forced to find ways to wittingly retaliate against their newfound rivals, the established popular kids.
