"All jacked up is an angst-driven portrait of four teenagers who discover the truth about their obsessive, addictive, and emotion-fueled eating habits. All this brought on by their parents, schools, and our abusive food system that profits from them with no regard to their well-being. Melissa, Raquel, Michael and Danny are typical teens with mainstream lifestyles and eating habits. With the help of a curious narrator, they discover what lies beneath their exploitation and how to confront it. Teen emotional and physical conditions are examined by noted experts as the film uncovers an apparent conspiracy that works against the health of an entire generation. The film's characters are led on a journey of discovery - they are challenged to recognize their detrimental underlying issues. With the help of experts, and guidance from their peers, they are presented simple solutions to deal with their problems. The teens are challenged to come to grips with their harmful lifestyles and what their unhealthy future holds. In a climate where media attention is primarily on childhood obesity, director Jennifer Mattox looks at the bigger picture - a system that preys upon consumer innocence in the name of profit. The filmmakers make a direct connection between what teens eat and their behavior and emotions. This frank and witty look at what's really going on inside the bodies, hearts and minds of the teen generation is a wake up call for them to stand up and demand change."
