feels like that is having a child and becoming a mom. >> and there is an actual pregnancy pact among the young girls in this story? >> yeah, yeah. the three girls, well actually my character comes up with the idea that we should all get pregnant at the same time. it will be cool, we'll be fierce lions and we'll be these amazing young women and they decide that that's the best choice for them. >> jennifer, is this based on a true story. >> yes to a certain extent, the but it was as you said, based on something that happened in the boston area, where a group of girls made a pact, that they would all try to get pregnant so they could have babies around the same time. >> and what drew you to the story? >> well again, i love the fact that it's about girls, most of our cultural performance pieces whether it's film, television or
protagonists and there are females in them. but the women and the girls are usually supporting cast and the mothers, the wives, the daughters of the primary characters. i love the fact that this is telling the story of three young women and what they perceive to be their life choices. >> and kashana do you feel as a young woman this really does address some of the issues we may not talk about? >> definitely. even with having in massachusetts, that pact is evidence that it is very real. i mean you see it every day. you see young girls pushing strollers and you know, have like their kids you know walking behind them and i see it when i was growing up with kids in my school. and even in families. it's very much present in our community. >> where will we be able to see this now? i know it's opening soon. it's opened already, right?
