Synopsis by Sarah Sloboda
The Canadian television series Degrassi High has been praised regarding the extent to which it deals realistically with the issues of adolescence. A continuation of Kids of Degrassi Street and then Degrassi Junior High, the program became popular for its upfront presentation of emotional issues before the 90210 trend began. In this episode, L.D. tries to cope with leukemia, but even with support from Lucy, she ends up quitting school. Maya gets offended because Kathleen, Melanie, and Diane leave her out of their moviegoing plans because the theater isn't wheelchair accessible. Meanwhile, Heather tries to make her friendship with Wheels more than that.
