by Phi Tran

Taking place in the quiet town of Soda Springs, Idaho, The PTA Meeting takes a peek into the lives of three men: Milo, Damian, and Sebastian. They have led Thirkhill Elementary's Parent Teacher Association for years, working together seamlessly to keep their community running smoothly. All is well until tragedy strikes and rips through the town. Bonds are broken, trust is tested, and emotions are weaponized as they fight for their humanity.
