Summary:
Against the backdrop of Spring Break overindulgence in Panama City, Florida, this documentary examines the harrowing and tragic consequences of underage drinkers who do not understand the real risks of out-of-control alcohol abuse. Introduces two brain and alcohol researchers who take students on an eye-opening video field trip, using their tools-of-the-trade (including MRIs and PET scans) to graphically show alcohol damage in the brain. Using 3-D images of the brain, the researchers describe what happens as drink after drink is consumed, causing the brain to ultimately shut down the autonomic nervous system, causing death. A young teenage girl who was sexually assaulted during a Spring Break drinking binge presents her painful story. Also interviews the parent of a student who died from alcohol poisoning while partying with his friends. Interspersed throughout is footage of alternative, alcohol-free Spring Breaks, featuring real teens who decided to do something constructive with their vacations, such as building housing for needy families.
