Sex parties, drugs, eating disorders, suicide...It seems everywhere you turn there's another report of teenage girls gone bad. This program follows one mother's investigation into the lives of young women and the mixed messages that girls receive about conforming to specific behavioral or beauty ideals. "Media feeds girls a constant diet of provocative images and then calls them sluts or skanks when they achieve that look," says Dr. Lyn Mikel Brown, one of three specialists on female adolescence featured in the film. Through candid conversations with teen girls about sex, substance abuse, and the pressure to be popular, viewers glimpse the real-life stories behind the scandalous headlines and find a generation that is at once more accomplished, and yet more anxiety-ridden, than perhaps any other before.
