Depot Young Programmers present this coming-of-age comedy drama. When a teenage girl is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, she enlists the aid of her best friend in finding the unborn child a suitable home. Juno may seem wise beyond her years, but after sleeping with classmate Bleeker, the pregnant teen quickly realises how little she really knows about life. Juno has been blessed with parents who trust their daughter's judgment, and a best friend who's always willing to help out in a pinch. As adolescent Juno is faced with a series of very adult decisions, she draws on the support of her family and friends in order to discover who she truly is.

'It transcends its own genre. Only superficially a teen comedy, the movie redounds with postmodern - but emotionally genuine - gravitas.' - Desson Thompson, Washington Post
