What kind of struggles do teens in Reno have to face? How do teens cope with their life changing experiences? What can people learn from these teens? In Reno, Nevada, four teenagers are going to show their dramatic life situations to describe the conflicts they have had to face. Natalie, at the age of 18, is a senior attending Rainshadow Community Charter High School. She has a lot of potential goals surrounding music and looks up to her uncle, an ex-drummer and an alcoholic. Jonathan is a Mexican student who had to struggle with his parents getting divorced and got involved with gangs. Marisela is a 17 year old teen who had to deal with the loss of a very close friend and has had difficulty realizing her best friend is gone. Martha, a 17 year old teen, had to struggle with peer pressure and focusing on school while so many other things were going on.
The life changing experiences that have occurred in the lives of these four individuals will be shown through interviews with the people who were involved. The film will take the audience on a journey to the prime locations of a teenager's life. This film will show four very different student stories, from divorce to dreams to difficulties to death, in the voices of the individuals who experienced them. Between each story, opinions about these issues will be gathered from outside individuals through street interviews.
