On The Edge


Leah finds out she is pregnant at just 16 years old. Her parents are shocked but react in different ways. Leah and her boyfriend Kyle want to keep the baby. Leah’s mother is supportive of this but Leah’s Dad tries to encourage her to have a termination. He has his daughter’s best interests at heart, as feels that 16 is not the right age for her to become a mother. Leah is annoyed that he tries to push her down a route that she does not want. As the pregnancy goes on, Leah suffers a miscarriage and is left devastated. Her father feels sorry for not supporting her and sees the pain in his daughters eyes. He tries to offer support … but in the eyes of Leah, it is too little, too late.
