The Chalk Boy is a deathly black comedy about measuring your own worth by comparing it to everyone else's. Sparks fly when four teenage girls in small town Washington begin to obsess over the mysterious disappearance of the most popular boy in school. Witchcraft, murder, and shopping ensue as the girls draw a ghostly picture of American culture and its values. The cast features Mallery Avidon, Mary Catherine Donnelly, Jennifer Harder, and Courtney Sale.
Dale Heinen directs.
