A look at the lives of a group of teenage friends through their own eyes.

The friends are 14-year old girls from varied backgrounds and different parts of the world.

In the programme, they return to their roots as they interview parents and relatives.

How do the worlds left behind - from the Caribbean to Africa, South America to Portugal - compare to growing up in 21st century Britain with all its opportunities and difficulties?
