Yikes! These shorts put your teenage years on film, riddled with hilariously terrifying brain and hormonal development. Be angsty, be rebellious, make a playlist, make friends, lose friends, fall in love, skip class, find yourself, horrify your parents, discover your style, dye your hair, dance in the face of societal pressure, meet chosen family, cry it out, bask in juvenescence, and live out loud. Let’s make wonderfully horrible decisions!
