Set in the cutthroat, boy-dominated world of high school debate where tomorrow’s leaders get their start, Girl Talk tells the timely story of five girls on a diverse, top-ranked Massachusetts high school debate team as they strive to become the best debaters in the United States. These debaters remain steadfast in their determination to overcome the odds, reminding us that equal rights and freedom of expression are worth fighting for and that American heroes might be found even among the youngest of a generation.
