What’s it like to come of age in the city that never sleeps? Shot over the course of three years, this warm and intimate documentary follows teenage sisters Ginger and Dusty and their friends as they navigate New York City during the tenuous time surrounding the high school to college transition. The film’s dreamy cinematography perfectly captures the beauty and truth of these young women, who candidly and vulnerably discuss their struggles with family, identity, friendship, and everything that inspires panic—from what to wear on the first day of junior year to mentally unstable parents who lose their jobs. The strength, resilience, and strange wisdom of these brave teens will instill you with new hope for the next generation. Scheduled to Appear via Skype: Director Jenny Gage.
