A typical 17-year-old teenager, Kati Genthner is preparing to graduate and go out into the real world. But having stayed in Jacksonville, Alabama, to finish high school when her family moved to North Carolina, she's now forced to rejoin them---and leave behind her skateboarding fianc. Robert Greene's documentary captures so many wonderfully delicate, private moments in Kati's life (a scene in which she and her boyfriend sing together could melt a cynic's heart) that it seems churlish to wish the film said more about what it's actually like to be a young woman today, or that its dramatic denouements didn't feel like reality TV writ only slightly larger.
