In Pahokee, a small town in the Florida Everglades, four teens experience the joys and heartbreaks of their last year in high school. From sporting events to beauty contests at school, the filmmakers explore social and community rituals, and how gender and identity are portrayed as new stories are created. When Co-Director Patrick Bresnan photographed the prom in Pahokee in 2014 he was really inspired by how much work, creativity, and community support went into this rite of passage, and how much pride there was for the teenagers in Pahokee. "Lively and rousing as a generational snapshot, buoyed by the lovable, resilient kids at its heart." (Variety)
