Stealing School – Release News

Stealing School will be available in the U.S. on VOD platforms from February 26, 2021. 

Asian-Canadian writer/director Li Dong’s debut feature film Stealing School spotlights systematic racism through the eyes of a female Asian student at a prestigious university in this satirical courtroom comedy-drama, releasing on U.S. digital platforms on February 26, 2021. 

Synopsis: April, a brilliant programmer with a promising future, is accused of plagiarism by Keith, a teaching assistant who drags her in front of an academic hearing to prevent her from graduating. While operating under the guise of an impartial panel, the three tribunal judges each have their own illicit motivations and personal biases that will secretly steer the course of the trial. By aggressively questioning a colourful group of witnesses, both April and Keith build their cases while becoming increasingly acrimonious towards each other. As tensions rise, the facade of civility and political correctness begins to erode, revealing sinister and unflattering sides of all parties concerned. Behind the closed doors of a prestigious institution of higher learning, what began as a seemingly honourable pursuit of justice slowly turns into a chaotic display of corruption, pettiness and naked self-interest.
