Two sisters support each other as they raise their very different teenage daughters, one of whom is seemingly perfect but is in an abusive relationship.
This is the fictional story of two very different 15-year-old girls, one caught up in her first love, betrayed when the relationship turns violent; the other engaging in increasingly risky behavior, and striking out against the hypocrisy of the media-obsessed culture around her. Elizabeth is the seemingly perfect girl with the perfect boyfriend, raised by loving parents in a middle class home. Kelli lives with her single mom who is at her wits end with her rebellious daughter. When Kelli starts to suspect that Elizabeth may be in an abusive relationship, no one will take her seriously, not even Elizabeth. But when Elizabeth finally lands in the hospital, it's Kelli's surprising insights into the causes for her and her cousin's behavior that leads to Elizabeth's final release from her relationship. Jane Kaczmarek, Kim Dickens, Nick Thurston and Rebecca Williams star.
