Canadian filmmaker Maureen Judge (My Millennial Life, DocFest ’18) follows three teen girls from diverse backgrounds on their final year of high school. With academic, athletic, and entrepreneurial ambitions, their future remains uncertain. It’s a refreshingly unguarded look into a pivotal point in the lives of the next generation.

“[It] is no snapshot. It delves deep into its subjects as they deal with daily life, rejection and family tensions.” – John Doyle, Globe & Mail
