WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The ABCs explores fantasy and the imagination in the lives of teenage girls. Navigating the realm between childhood and adulthood, teenage girls are forced to give up the trappings of the young, such as imaginary friends. They are thrust into a new, technologically unimaginable adult world filled with fantastical idols like the Kardashians.
How can we ask teenagers to give up one fantasy for another? What happens when fantasy, imagination, and social media blend? How do teenagers navigate the world today when their "stories" can only be 10 seconds long and will literally disappear on apps like Snapchat? The ABCs follows one girl, Dakota, on her quest for achievable perfection and fantasy fulfilled in a world that tells her this is possible.
