Two lines means pregnant, and pregnant is the very last thing seventeen-year-old Isabelle wants to be. She’s just beginning her senior year, she’s rekindling the respectable relationship she once had with her family and she’s finally fallen in love.
Her boyfriend, Jason, wants an abortion, while Isabelle wants to give her baby a chance at life, whether that means adoption or raising her baby herself. Her situation raises a question of values, beliefs, rights, societal expectations and personal opinions, and as Isabelle’s friends and family discover the news, they seem to think that only they know what’s best for her and her baby.
Within two weeks of finding out about their beautiful disaster, Isabelle and Jason have to come to a mutual agreement and make a life or death decision.

  1. I think this is a good subject because we need to teach people that things like this happen and there is nothing to be ashamed of! In my country, young mothers are regarded with suspicion by the rest of society. It's sad to see that sometimes even the girl's family refuses to offer support!

    1. WOW, that is sad to hear. I know that happens a lot here in the States as well and I really wish we could support the these young women istead of bashing them for there choices. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Ralu :)
