Teenagers did not always exist. In this living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and voices lifted from early 20th Century diary entries, a struggle erupts between adults and adolescents to define a new idea of youth.
Teenage does not use "talking head" analysis or punditry often seen in documentary films. There are no new interviews with adults reflecting on their experiences in the past. Instead, using a combination of archival and reenacted footage, the film dedicates itself to depicting youth through the viewpoint and voice of the young.
