    Five teen-aged Latinas living in San Francisco's Mission District-most of them recent immigrants from Mexico or other Central American countries-talk frankly about their lives, from discrimination and school , to friends and family relationships, experiences with gang activity and violence, and plans for the future. Their comments are blended with footage of neighborhood life and other activities to provide meaningful insights into the everyday lives of young Hispanic women in the U.S. today.
