Marsha is a fourteen-year-old slag. She and her friend Faith regularly go out looking for a good time, which more often than not involves sex. Both from broken homes, they don't see anything wrong with the way they behave. Until Marsha meets Rich. Rich is different. Unsure, and from a loving family, he finds Marsha a bit too full on. But being with Rich is like being with a friend - one who listens to her and asks her opinion. Rich makes her feel that she's worth more than a quick shag in the park. But is it possible to change? Screwed examines the question of peer pressure, family and their influence on identity. It also takes a frank look at the all-too-common social problem of underage sex and its consequences.
