Using an entertaining style that seamlessly combines documentary and narrative formats, this film dynamically arms viewers with important information and tools to personally combat the teen pregnancy problem. A multiethnic cast follows several stories: two teens who want to have a baby together; a young couple who dont want to have children until they are married and financially able; two older teens who have already had a baby and are struggling with the commitment of being responsible parents; and a middle-aged teen pregnancy support group leader who learned first-hand the difficulties of being a teen mom. As their stories play out, important facts become clear: only one-third of teen mothers obtain a high school diploma, only one-in-five teen mothers marry their childs father, 25 percent of teen mothers have another baby within two years, and teen parents typically do not have realistic long term goals.
