Based on a true story, Gaby Rodriguez (Alexa Vega) is the brave 18-year-old high school student who forces her school and community to confront its preconceptions about teen pregnancy. When Gaby chooses stereotyping for her senior project, she decides to experience it firsthand. Confiding in her mother (Judy Reyes), her boyfriend (Walter Perez) and a handful of others, Gaby begins her social experiment in which she tells her friends, family and teachers that she is pregnant. While her fake baby bump continues to grow, she carefully records how she is treated and what is being said about her--for better and for worse--both in and out of school. With her project's findings conclusive, Gaby emotionally addresses her fellow students and their teachers about stereotyping and teen pregnancy during a special school assembly and then shocks them by ripping off her "baby bump," revealing she was never pregnant at all and teaching them a valuable lesson.
