Despite a sexual education program that encourages only abstinence, a message reinforced by the conservative clergy; Lubbock, Texas, has one of the highest rates for teen pregnancies and STDs in the entirety of the United States. Shelby is a devout Southern Baptist teen who joins a youth organization affiliated with Lubbock's government. When the organization tackles the previously mentioned statistics, Knox is forced to wrestle with the disparity between her politics and her faith.
