Maiga, a fifteen year-old, is sent to a Juvenile Detention Center for shoplifting and truancy.  She and her friends are interviewed over the course of four weeks.  The film gives a fascinating account of what background these children come from, what the principles of education at the Juvenile Detention Center are, and the chances these teenagers still have at making it in society.
