Sarah, Lauren and Cassie may seem like ordinary teenage girls, but
they all face charges on crimes they have committed in the past.
girls have two choices: Serve time in prison, or work on a farm at an
experimental juvenile detention program. All have different pasts (a
dealer, junkie, recluse and thief) but the four girls choose to work
on the farm.
and Donna, the women who run the program, believe that “mistakes
should not exclude you from the best possible future.” From the
beginning, three of the girls find this “punishment” has not only
helped them turn their lives around, but has brought them closer
together and help them discover strengths that they didn’t know
to get rid of their pasts and move on, except one. She has something
against the women who are in charge of the farm because of a deep
dark secret. With her rebellious streak, could one girl demolish
everything that the other three have worked so hard to overcome in
the past twelve weeks?
