"In the past decade, the San Francisco youth crime rate declined, the
number of GIRLS in the Juvenile Justice System more than doubled. This
film follows four years in the lives of three teenage girls caught up in
San Francisco's Juvenile Justice System."--Title screens. This
documentary tells the compelling stories of Stephanie, Shangra, and
Sheila, opening a window onto the juvenile justice system, exposing its
failure to break the cycle of poverty, crime, and incarceration that
consumes vulnerable young women. Two programs are hightlighted: The
Walden House SisterKin Project and The Center for Young Women's

boundaries when it comes to helping girls in the system, addressing issues

process for young women.
