Last Man Standing Is a Girl

The role of young women in contemporary society is complex and never less than topical. The young women here show how strong they can be under pressure, displaying an independence and a survival instinct when so much seems stacked against them. Some of the films may be harrowing, but there is also a joyous celebration.
