All Jacked Up peers into the real lives of four typical teenagers as they are urged to face up to the ongoing manipulation of their generation by big food manufacturers as their parents, schools, and government stand idly by.
Are we jeopardizing the well-being of today's youth when it comes to our lifestyles? This angst-driven portrait of four typical teenagers exposes a systematic pattern of negligence and exploitation by government, big business, schools and parents concerning the food they eat. In a climate where media attention is primarily on childhood obesity, this film looks at the big picture - a system that preys upon consumer innocence in the name of profit. The filmmakers make a direct connection between what teens eat and their behavior and emotions. Written by
