F 14-17 | Winnie Bernard: Winnie is nervously entering her freshman year at Watkin’s High. Winnie is very innocent, naive and just wants to be accepted. She sits as the perfect victim to Principal Watkins; malicious and corrupt conventions. Luckily with the guidance she finds from Coco, Lola and Ginger, she avoids falling down the rabbit hole that is, The NEW Watkin’s High Student Handbook. Winnie is able to find her voice with the help of a few new role models and the strength within herself.
LOGLINE Watkins High is a dark comedy about a group of high school girls who must silence their evil principal or else the girls of Watkins High will be doomed forever… SYNOPSIS Set in the world of the all-girls private school, Watkins High, the new principal Regis Watkins makes his first call of duty. He changes the rules and regulations of the Watkins’ High girl uniform and “LOOK” … in the most promiscuous way imaginable. Three of Watkins High’s graduating students catch wind of the new changes and waste no time in campaigning against them. What begins as typical teenage rebellion quickly changes course. The three girls discover the unhealthy and detrimental consequences of the unrealistic expectations placed on the female body at such a young age. As this realization transpires, the girls devise a plan against their misogynistic principal, to not only save themselves but to save the future generations of Watkins High.
