"A provocative short film that takes a hard look at the dangers of becoming a runaway, particularly the risk of sexual exploitation of teen girls by ruthless pimps. This narrative film, based loosely on actual events, follows the ordeal of a teenage girl who makes an impulsive decision to run away from her group home.
