Bright Days, Stupid Nights
Landing a prestigious summer internship on a Pulitzer Prizewinning newspaper seems ideal for Chris, who's glad to be taken seriously as a writer and to get away from his blue-collar father's expectations. For Vicki, it's a chance to grow up, shine in the big time, and maybe even get a scholarship so she won't end up stuck in a dead-end job like her mother. For Elizabeth, it means time to distance herself from the suffocating relationship she has with her boyfriend. For Faith, it's a way to forget the past and try to be just a normal teenager. Weeks of work and play wear on their relationships: What do they expect of each other? What do they expect of themselves?
