Followed by a panel discussion moderated by WBUR's Meghna Chakrabarti with Lauren Birchfield Kennedy, co-founder of Neighborhood Villages, and Al Race, Deputy Director and Chief Knowledge Officer, Center on the Developing Child, Harvard University.

This documentary explores the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for change in America today: early childhood education. Through poignant stories and surprising humor, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, and reveals how our failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families, and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.

The film's interviewees include Geoffrey Canada (Harlem Children's Zone), Rosemarie Truglio (Sesame Workshop), Alison Gopnik (UC Berkeley), and Nadine Burke Harris (California Surgeon General). The film is narrated by Alfre Woodard.
