When 16-year-old, cheerful Camille unexpectedly gets pregnant, she is sent to a youth home. She is separated from her beloved but eccentric mother and finds solace in a new friend, Allison, who is also a teenage mother at the facility. The youth home's environment is nurturing and supportive, fostering a sense of warmth and camaraderie among its residents. Although Camille initially struggles with Nadine, a cynical social worker, Nadine's guidance eventually helps Camille forge a new, independent life for herself.
