Depression, anxiety, and an overwhelming schedule may be hallmarks of adulthood, but many young people are also familiar with them. This program gathers together the voices of teenagers as they reflect on personal frustrations and challenges.
In an expressive flow of words, images, and music, three high school students – an ambitious male cheerleader raised by a single mother, a pierced and tattooed recovering cutter, and a dyslexic student wrestling with her anger at the school system – articulate fascinating perspectives, along with a chorus of others.
The result is an excellent catalyst for class discussions about peer pressure, authority, and the future.
