Scenes from SubUrbia: A classroom project.
Years after their high school graduation, a group of 20-something friends still gather nightly in the parking lot of a local gas station in their suburban hometown of Burnfield, New Jersey, to eat pizza, drink beer, and relive their high school glory days. Set in the 1990’s, SubUrbia captures the frustrations of a generation struggling to salvage the American dream.
