THE BLING RING follows a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and fame who notoriously burglarized the homes of celebrities in Los Angeles.
Tracking their targets’ whereabouts online, the teens 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.
