The Premise

Four college friends gather at their 10 year reunion where one of them finds that it's character that matters most, not success.

The Film

It's Dave, Tom, Janice and Christine's 10 year college reunion. Much has changed for Tom and Janice in the past ten years - successful jobs at the top of their field, gorgeous and brilliant children, and social connections to the elite of society. Little has changed for poor old Dave. He is a struggling comic book author who still lives with his parents. Tom and Janice quickly mock and berate Dave for his lack of success, but it's a Dave's conversation with Christine that makes Dave realize life isn't all about financial and social success, but about who you are and what you were made to do that really makes one happy.

Reunion was filmed in one day on the RED One Digital Cinema Camera as part of the Bel Air Presbyterian "Then Sings My Soul" curriculum. The DVD and accompanying material was distributed to over 20,000 people.
