The play follows the lives of four teenage students through their grade nine year. Sabrina, Kellie, David and Larry have grown up as friends, but in high school everything changes. In order to fit in with the “cool” crowd, Sabrina starts smoking, a habit she started in elementary school. This eventually leads to other problems, like cutting classes, drinking and drugs. She, in turn, pressures Kellie, a dancer, into smoking. David, however, is firmly set against smoking because his father is dying from lung cancer. Meanwhile, Larry is dealing with his own personal problems at home while, at the same time, trying to keep his group of friends from breaking up.
