Los Angeles, 1982: Erin’s teacher, Mrs. Ketchum, adapts the children’s book All Wrong, Mrs. Bear into a play for a presentation in front of the whole school. She stands in front of the class, presenting the project, and asks: “Who would like to play Mrs. Bear?” Erin politely waits for other students to raise their hands in interest. When Mrs. Ketchum’s request is met with silence, Erin turns to her classmates and speaks out of turn in disbelief: “You GUYS! It’s the LEAD!”
