    Storyline: Based on a true story of the writer’s son, the short film, Squeeze, tells the story of Noah Levy who is trying to survive high school like every other teen out there. Noah has felt extra lonely being the only neurodivergent student in his school in the late 1990’s. But when the school wrestling coach takes an interest in him and puts him on the team, Noah’s life trajectory changes as does the understanding and growth for his fellow teammates.
