Three girls... three secrets...

When life circumstances get in the way of the hopes and dreams of three teenage girls, can they fight their inner battles and emerge victorious?
Rivky, recently diagnosed with a medical condition, refuses to let her new found illness get the better of her. She won't let it stop her from accomplishing her goals and projects and certainly won't let it change the way her friends think of her... so she simply doesn't tell them. Will the pain of being sick make her confess her secret...Or will the mounting pressure to simply hide being sick cause her to go over the edge?

When Chavi discovers her brother is sliding down a slippery slope, she takes matters into her own hands, sabotaging his escape plans, attempting to foil is dangerous dealings, all the while trying to remain steadfast in her belief that this is all for the best. Can she save her brother from a disastrous fate? Or will she lose herself in the process?

Lonely games are what Etty plays bests. She knows how to hide her feelings of loneliness, wearing a mask of happiness to fool everyone. Through her art she reveals bits and pieces of what is going on in her mind which seems to be her only way to channel out her overwhelming emotions that just keep building up. But time is running out on Etty's emotional clock and she ready to explode. How much longer can she ignore her feelings and finally admit that she isn't as happy or strong as she appears?

Three friends, struggling to make it through their junior year, learn that there is more to life than what goes on in their own world. Together they bridge the gaps that have opened between them and manage to find answers to the questions that haunt them every day.
