A group of four teenage girls in the San Fernando Valley, and the usual problems teenagers have to cope with. Deidre is fascinated by her sexuality, Madge is unhappily overweight, Annie is into booze and drugs, and Jeanie has to take care of all of them. They think that the school is a waste of time, their boyfriends are immature, and that they are alienated from the adults in their lives. Jeanie is most worried about Annie and risks her neck more than once trying to keep Annie clean and safe-and-sound. But Annie's unstable behavior and flare keeps everyone on edge, and finally leads to her death in a car wreck. Written by
The city had it coming.
