Acclaimed director Aviva Zeigler returns to three young women she first filmed over ten years ago when they were part of a radical experiment to change the lives of teenage mums by keeping them at school.
The Plumpton High Young Mothers’ program was the first of its kind in the world - but did it succeed or did it fail?
1 x 1 hour documentary
‘What emerges from the documentary is a sense that even in cases where the women may have not quite finished their education, or found themselves struggling, they had a sense of resilience and self-worth that they might not otherwise have had.’ - Stephanie Convery, The Guardian
Based on an idea by Julian Russell for the original series Plumpton High Babies (2002)
