20 American children between the ages of 7 and 11 were given digital cameras and the opportunity to film their own lives over the course of several months.Each episode inter-cuts the stories of three to four children from different backgrounds,with a snapshot of American life through their eyes.
Filming themselves at home, in school, and on vacation they show different aspects of their lives. With their narration in which they talked to the camera, we hear about their thoughts and feelings tackling difficult issues such as absent parents, divorce, racism and religious beliefs. They offer their thoughts on the complexities of life, meaning of success, and the role of gender. By sharing their favorite games, they also remind viewers of what it means to be a child.
