The film begins in 2001 when Shelby Knox, a 15-year-old high school sophomore, joins the Lubbock Youth Commission, a group of high school students empowered by the mayor to give Lubbock's youth a voice in city government. Knowing that Lubbock, Tex. had one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease in the nation, the Youth Commission questioned Lubbock's abstinence-only sex education policy. Shelby, a politically conservative Southern Baptist who had pledged abstinence until marriage, became the group's most vocal proponent of comprehensive sex education. The documentary explores other issues beyond the debate over abstinence-only versus comprehensive sex education. It portrays Shelby's family's struggle with teen independence; Shelby's struggle with her Christian faith; Shelby's widening activism into other issues, such as the creation of a Gay/Straight Alliance at her high school; issues of tolerance; and the power of political activism2093ocn770371661visu20110.50Where soldiers come fromBiographyPersonal narratives AmericanIn Michigan's snowy Upper Peninsula, job opportunities are few, and friends are usually for life.
