Three very different Los Angeles teenage girls find themselves pregnant and dealing with poverty, drugs and confusion. Shanika (Tamara LaSeon Bass) has a drug addict for a mother and is currently living in a foster home. Araceley (Tonatzin Mondragon) tries living with her loser and broke boyfriend after her parents kick her out of their house out of shame. Tina (Keely Vint), born to a teenage mother herself, isn't sure who the father of her child is. Written by
Director Kerri Green, who you might remember as the pretty redhead from Lucas, does a great job of directing Bellyfruit on a small budget. The film deals with teen girls having babies even though they're still kids themselves. The film shows why the girls get pregnant, which usually has to do with immaturity and broken homes, and it also shows the enormous consequences. The cast which seems to be newcomers are all believable in their parts. I bought a copy of this film for my Goddaughter who is a teen and she's watched it about 20 times.
