Breaking Boston – Docudrama following a group of working class women coming of age with the odds stacked against them.
The women, who are in their twenties, are trying to break the cycle of their peers in a town where education, employment and opportunities are hard to come by. Each one of them has already hit rock bottom via destructive relationships or bad choices, but they’re all leaning on each other and looking for a way out.
The series joins them at a critical time in their life; where they’re trying to shed their pasts in order to pave way for their future. Kristina, 29, faced jail time when her ex-boyfriend was caught running a drug ring out of their shared home but was acquitted and is now trying to move on with her new boyfriend Mikey while pursuing a career in hair styling. Valerie, 22, had two DUIs and a jail sentence on her record before she graduated high school and is now trying to attend college with a tarnished record and no financial aid. Noelle, 25, recently suffered the loss of her brother to a tragic car accident and is finding it difficult to move on with her life while living at home and supporting her mother. Courtney, 25, is a single mom with a 7th grade education and a dream to get into beauty school.
