Synopsis

Kay Hymowitz explores the predicament of a generation growing up in a world where adults lavish them with material possessions but don't know how to provide them with the ordinary truths that give life meaning. She takes the measure of a young generation afflicted with a loss of deep connection, civility, and moral clarity, as well as a depleted vision of the human predicament.
