Nancy and Katie were best friends. Whether it was smoking pot during lunch break, drinking in the bathroom stalls, or cutting themselves; they always found something dangerous and crazy to do. But after a bit Nancy and Katie were out of control. Nancy’s boyfriend is fed up with babysitting her all the time. Her parents are alcoholics that don't pay much attention to her. Just after coming out of the psych ward, tragedy strikes. Will Nancy be able to quit her addiction of cutting or will she finally be pushed to the limit?  (Jamie Lee Cannon, Mansfield High School Student)
