The Prom

The Prom is a documentary style commentary on proms and their emotional legacy. Real life glimpses that peek in on today's prom goers are juxtaposed with a variety of memories, dilemmas and anecdotes that bring this American tradition home. The Prom provides entertainment for the casual observer, sociologist and shrink. It provides raw material on a thought provoking subject.
