is a longitudinal project following five teenage girls from vastly different economic backgrounds through five years of their lives. Each girl has her own camera, and the film compares the hopes and dreams of each while examining the opportunities and choices each girl realistically has available to her. The film premiered in November 2005 at the American Film Institute Festival, and also swept the awards at the 2005 New Orleans Film Festival, winning Best Documentary, Grand Jury Prize, and Best Louisiana Film. It is now showing at festivals and the distributor is Women Make Movies.
