Plot Summary
A group of teenage girls, coming of age in Brooklyn, navigates the ephemeral and fleeting transition between childhood and adulthood. Shot over a three-year period, it is a meditation on the mysterious, often painful, yet ultimately exhilarating period of a teen's life. These city girls, raised where everything moves fast, appear savvy and sophisticated, but their Brooklyn attitudes can't obliterate the baseline insecurities, fears and awkwardness shared by teens across the globe.
