Upper-class 12-year-old Lonnie meets the impudent, slightly older Karen on the street. They spend time together and Karen teaches Lonnie some of her favorite pasttimes, like make-up, shoplifting, skipping school and lying to her parents about it. In exchange, Karen learns something about honesty.
Like the powerful Times Square, Old Enough is a film about two young women’s social differences, and how those very differences can unexpectedly bring people together.
