At a school specifically set up to give a second chance to teenage girls with social and emotional problems and criminal histories, all of whom have been previously expelled from mainstream education, an inspiring English teacher cajoles the girls into mounting an all-female production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. At first the girls resist, but as rehearsals begin, despite many setbacks and challenges, they slowly but surely start to see how this 400-year-old play has so much more connection to their teenage lives than they could ever have imagined.
