A trailer has been released for a title with a buzz growing around it, described as Stand by Me meets The Virgin Suicides and even a little Stranger Things thanks to its ’80s setting and the use of popular songs from that decade.
The project is titled When the Street Lights Go On, and it’s a crime drama about a boy who finds the bodies of a murdered girl and teacher in a car out in the woods in the summer of 1983.
You can read much more about the project and check out the first trailer below.

“Many of us may fight and die here. We recognize this as the vision of the founders of this nation. We recognize that we are America. We recognize that we are free men. Political pigs, your days are numbered. We are the Second American Revolution. We are winning. Yippie.” – Abbie Hoffman
It was one of the saddest and most sobering moments in American history. At the height of the Vietnam War with the nation sharply divided for the first time since the Civil War, the U.S. was going through a period of great social and political upheaval. The Civil Rights Movement and the Women’s Rights Movement were going full force. President Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, had presided over the escalation of the burgeoning conflict in Vietnam into a full-blown war and was ramping up the draft to the point where no man was safe from conscription.
