This three-year documentary follows Shelby Knox, a Lubbock High student from a conservative background, as she questions the abstinence only sex education approach of her parents, school, and community. In Shelby’s home town sexually transmitted diseases and teen pregnancies are at epidemic levels. Though Shelby is standing by her own abstinence pledge, she becomes the driving force behind a campaign for fact-based sex education for the teens of her community.

This documentary is an example of young people standing up for themselves and making a difference. Shelby’s strength and integrity is a role model for people of any age. The 2005 date of this film highlights that many important issues in our country continue to be challenged, debated and discussed.
