Talks about the pressures boys are under from birth to abide by the "boy code," and how this harms their emotional development. Asserts that the aggressive, dominating and even brutal portrayal of "manhood" shown in media leads to a culture of cruelty among boys against the "weak." Follows a group enrolled in the Idaho-based SUWS troubled teens wilderness program as they struggle through their problems and face challenges with the help of the treatment team. Also covers a three-day workshop in Chicago facilitated by Michael Meade, author and mythologist, as he attempts to create a special ceremony through storytelling to encourage adolescent boys to express their inner live through interpreting myths. Includes interviews with the director of SUWS, a researcher, a primary teacher, authors and psychologists.
