A powerful drama about the plight of teen mothers
12 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Along the reality lines of the movie KIDS, this film has a cutting edge in terms of its subject matter and its characters. These three teens learn the hard way how to navigate their way through this modern urban chaos of drugs, violence, sex and motherhood. Incredible ensemble acting work. A must see.
