Set in high school in 1965, City Girls reveals the trials and tribulations of trying to fit in. It
demonstrates the endlessly creative ways people signal who’s “better than” or “less than”.
At their first-ever all-city, spiritual retreat, Sue and her teenage friends share laughs, and
family secrets, discuss a variety of taboos, and begin to find their voices of strength on
such diverse topics as religion, income, addictions, and race.
