Teensville - My Bar Mitzvah Diary

Film which follows five very different British Jewish kids as they prepare for the biggest, most important day of their lives so far - their Bar or Bat Mitzvah - when, according to Jewish faith, they become responsible for their actions. There are chunks of the Torah to learn, last minute nerves to battle and glamorous outfits and glittering party venues to choose. These kids have got a lot on their plate, but all of them are determined to get it absolutely right on the day. Young actress Holly Gibbs navigates through the Bar and Bat Mitzvah experience, giving the lowdown on the spiritual journey that marks the passage into adulthood, as well as the party that follows.
