Brief description of the film taken from "A Partial List of Educational, Instructional, and Documentary Films Treating Women's Roles, Problems, and Communication Strategy," a paper presented at the Summer meeting of the Speech Communication Association (1975) by Richard Edwards and Bruce E. Gronbeck, University of Iowa:
"Designed to provoke discussion about how a teenage girl can best cope with an adult problem that faces her as she grows up: intimacy with the opposite sex. When 15 years old Sue visits Kathy, also 15; she finds her friend upset because of a confrontation with her father, who saw his daughter necking in a new boyfriend's car. He tells Kathy that she should stay with the group, but Kathy tells Sue that she can take care of herself. Can she?"
