We begin with Savannah Zayas, a teen mother in a struggling high school who’s determined to escape poverty by earning her diploma. Season 1 is based on more than a year of interviews with Savannah, who’s fought to overcome horrific abuse, and avoid the problems of the world around her — a drug-infused area of Philadelphia known as “the badlands.” Her goal: to graduate high school.
