”In My Room” is a coming of age film that takes place inside the rooms of six teenagers, and is told entirely out of self-made videos they posted on YouTube. Not YouTube stars, these are just teenagers talking to anyone who is willing to listen.

Arieh, a 12-year-old boy loves makeup; Lydia is questioning her gender and begins transitioning to Liam; Rachel struggles daily with anorexia; Lina is Muslim and fighting prejudice; Ryan is a sweet, straight Asian teen who lives for his music; and Sabrina is pregnant at 15. Through cross-editing of the characters, viewer comments, and footage from the entire video blogosphere, their lives are woven into one collective journey. The result is a visual and narrative kaleidoscope of adolescence, a rare invitation to peek inside the world of these fearless kids whose insights are both heartbreaking and inspiring.
