"The appealing music, candid accounts, and relaxed format of this Blue Ribbon winner at the American Film and Video Festival will attract young viewers." 

-- Booklist

An educational film about teenage dropouts. Teens relate their own experiences as dropouts and explain why they returned to school - or wish they had. Interwoven dramatic sequences illustrate the consequences of dropping out.

The year this film was released it was shown to every student in the Los Angeles school district. The following year there was a forty-percent decrease in the number of kids who dropped out of school.
