Through moments in the lives of three groups of girls, images gleaned from the web, and the live streams of young women around the globe, Bloom delves into the world of today's teenage girls. We delicately observe a hyper-connected but lonely generation inhabited by great lucidity, self-image obsession, and the need for self-affirmation in the face of a complex sense of alienation.
