THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a bittersweet portrait of Youth poised on the cusp of the scary, disillusioning path to adulthood. In Reagan Era New York City, three privileged Upper West Side kids – the swaggering, drug-dealing Dennis; his dispirited, free-thinking best friend and whipping boy, Warren; and confused, self-conscious fashion student Jessica – hang out, scheme for cash, challenge each other and make tentative steps toward authentic, vulnerable connection, all in a period of less than twenty-four hours in Dennis’ apartment.
