This documentary sheds light on the disturbing phenomenon of cutting, a form of self-injury practiced by teens as a means of alleviating emotional distress. Filmmaker Wendy Schneider interviews teens and former practitioners -- including Shirley Manson of the rock band Garbage -- about their personal experiences with cutting and their journeys toward recovery and self-acceptance.
