This is a story of teenage girls living in Toronto’s inner core, raised in shelters and housing projects. These girls feel so isolated and disconnected that joining a clique or gang becomes the only way to belong. For them violence is empowerment. The films looks at the sources of their violence: racial tension, family problems and some programs that can help them cope and overcome their destructive behaviour.

"Unsettling and compelling…Angry Girls is so devoid of sentimentality it makes Six Feet Under look like an episode of the Waltons.” – STARWEEK MAGAZINE
