Depicts the story of a real-life group of kids from an affluent neighborhood in the valley that continually robbed the Hollywood homes of wealthy celebrities for almost a year before finally being caught. Film shows a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and fame who burglarized the homes of celebrities in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets’ whereabouts online, the teens would break-in and steal designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth, amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, the members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that nearly any teenager would find hard to resist. What starts out as youthful fun spins out of control and reveals a sobering view of our modern culture. official plot version from wearefilmnation.com
