In Faculty Portrait, five people attempt to reconcile their grief a year after a shared traumatic event, but are surrounded by and trapped in the building where the event occurred. On the day a teacher is to be interviewed for a section of the school yearbook, memories surface and the characters discover that while they suffer alone, they can recover together.
