 The prom dress

Program #17


A young tomboy struggles to pick out the perfect dress after her crush asks her to a

prom she never wanted to attend in the first place.


Teen athlete and self-proclaimed tomboy, Tori, gets a chance at her dream date: a

night at the prom with local high school 'hottie,' Tanner. But when she must pick

out a dress for the prom, she realizes that the transition from who she is to what she

thinks Tanner wants is not at all what she thought it would be.
