Three very different girls. But all of them alone. Isolated. And pregnant. They meet at the county's education program for expecting teens. No way will they go to their town's only high school with their growing bellies. Too humiliating. Each girl just hopes to get through the drama. And graduate on time. From the Great Plains to the borderlands to the Mississippi Delta, rural America is struggling. The population is shrinking. And the economy is shifting away from agriculture. Without a safety net, rural families struggle with depression, drug abuse, alcoholism, and other problems. Gravel Road Rural addresses the contemporary issues affecting rural America in an unflinching way.
