Set in New York in 1982, This Is Our Youth follows 48 hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren, a dejected 19-year-old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis, his charismatic, drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica, the anxiously insightful young woman for whom Warren yearns.
