Show time is 3 PM. "After a misguided cry for help goes awry," reads From Up Here press notes, "Kenny Barrett's every move is closely monitored by people clamoring to 'help' him. But withstanding all the rehab and repair proves to be a bigger challenge than getting through his senior year. A comedy about surviving high school, siblings, school dances, mountaintops, and awkward love songs for ungrateful girls."
