Small Teen, Big World

Being a teenager is tough, but for 16-year-old Jasmine Burkitt it is even harder because she is just 3ft 8in tall and only fits clothes designed for a seven- to eight-year-old.

The 12 months captured in this documentary are the most important of Jasmine's life so far. She goes to New York to meet others with similar genetic conditions; camps out at her first pop festival; celebrates her sixteenth birthday and tries to contact her estranged father, who is average size. Unexpected events in this engaging teenager's life make this a compelling film.

Part of the Adult Season on BBC Three.
