Christine „Lady Bird“ McPherson doesn't fit in with the suburban Sacramento. She's snappy, confident and is intuitively emancipated mixed with purple hair and a love for things like theatre. Her dream is to leave the suburbs and go to New York to study art. Not only does she face financial problems but also many adolescence problems like falling in love for the first time. What it means to find out that her first boyfriend could be gay. Just as much as trying to prove yourself as a woman in suburban America. And finally, how much strength it takes to separate the good from the bad and the real from the fake.
