Overview

Deeply troubled teenagers spend time in a locked psychiatric ward. They are out of control--violent or suicidal, in trouble with the law, unpredictable, and dangerous. Twenty years later, a handful of them are thriving. In a series of interviews that began during their hospitalizations and ended years later, these teens tell their stories. Out of the Woods portrays edgy teenagers developing into thoughtful, responsible adults. Listening in on the poignant, dramatic, and funny interviews, we hear the kids growing into more composed versions of their tough and feisty selves.
