More children are having children in the US than in any other developed nation in the world - and central Texas has the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the US.

In this film we meet some of the young teenage mothers who are fighting to change their fate. In the face of politicians who will only endorse abstinence, as well as policy makers looking for creative and sustainable solutions, we hear the realities of two young women whose condition may mean they are forever caught in the cradle.
