We live in a world of social media, one in which we seem to be recording our every experience. But are we making memories or missing out on them? Through a series of scenes and monologues—everything from an accidental first date to a most unusual art exhibit to creating that last, best selfie—we meet a group of teens who are struggling to find the balance between documenting their lives and living them.
