GIRL TROUBLE is an intimate portrait of three girls who go in and out of the
juvenile justice system over four years, facing heartbreaking setbacks and
surprising successes. Their struggles with poverty, parenthood, violence and
homelessness expose a system that fails to meet the needs of girls in trouble.
Trying to stay out of jail, the girls work at the Center for Young Women’s Development,
an organization run by young women like them. As the girls confront
pivotal decisions, the Center’s 22-year-old leader, Lateefah Simon, is often
their only support.
