Three Los Angeles teens find themselves pregnant and dealing with poverty, drugs and confusion in this gritty cautionary tale: Shanika (Tamara LaSeon Bass), who has an addict for a mother, lives in foster homes; Aracely (Tonatzin Mondragon), whose parents kicked her out of the house, tries living with her broke boyfriend; and Tina (Keely Vint), born to a teenage mother herself, isn't sure who's the father of her child.
