Becky's Story provides a look at the results of Abstinence-Only Sexuality Education from the point of view of one teen mother. Becky tells her story in her own words — from taking the virginity pledge at church to juggling motherhood, work and school. Quirky animation and Ritsu Katsumata's funky music add humor and punch to this all too familiar tale.
