Lily is 16. It's her second last year in school, and she's trying to work out who she's going to be when she leaves. She doesn't feel like school has set her up to be a real adult. She has many questions about all the big things: money, sex, racism and - very importantly - how to fix a puncture. In this documentary, she talks to a bunch of adults about how they're navigating life, and how school could make someone like her feel more prepared for the future.
