Only the Young

The story of three teenagers that live in a small desert town in Southern California - a town dominated by foreclosed homes and underpasses, unfilled swimming pools and skate parks. These kids must find things to do in a place that offers nothing - yet in the course of observing their day-to-day lives, we see them discover friendship, first love, heartbreak, and what it means to be young. Tippet and Mims' delicate, ethereal filmmaking and ONLY THE YOUNG's innocent yet rebellious subjects collectively embody the very essence of adolescence.
