Dense slice of life
21 January 2002 | by (San Francisco, USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary follows a high schooler in Muncie, Indiana. The situations and conversations are amazing, the subjects had either total trust or complete ignorance of the documenters. Teen pregnancy, racism & cross burning, automobile fatality, drugs, heavy drinking & all night parties all touch the life of our protagonist & her circle.

Originally produced for PBS for part of their "Middletown" series on Muncie, but was not included.
