Sherri Rosen-Mason, the Head of the Admissions Department for a prep school in New England, is fighting to make the school’s student body more diverse.
With her husband, the school’s Headmaster, by her side in the battle, they have managed to transform a ‘monochromatic’ and dull school into an institution fit for the modern age. But when their son begins eyeing admission into an Ivy League school but gets deferred for not ‘ticking enough boxes’, their progressive ideals seem to go down the toilet.
“Admissions” explores the contradictions, hypocrisy and conflicts of interest that occasionally hinder progressivism.
