Childhood neighbors Chris and Emily were born a few months apart and had spent their days together as best friends, but when their childhood turned into the teenage years Emily began questioning how their relationship had quickly turned into more than a friendship. She wasn't ready for the physical demands that Chris thought so natural with someone he loved. The result was a tragedy and unlike Romeo and Juliet, Chris was arrested and held in prison until his trial.
Not only did the event wreck the lives of the two lovers, but also their parents who were as close as the children themselves.
Along with the story, the testimony of several witnesses and professional experts brought home the struggles and emotions that teenagers deal with, often without their parents understanding what is going on. It's so easy to just assume they are simply going through a fluctuation of hormones and not something that will have an everlasting effect on them and those around them.
