10. "You Gonna Trade? Trade With What?"

If your toiletries were reduced to a tiny little bag filled with objects like travel-sized toothpaste and a pencil, what would you do when it ran out? This is the question one inmate presents to a group of delinquent teens sitting before him, while holding up said bag.

"You have to trade," one teen answers, seemingly through a thick veil of disinterest, dragging his voice like it's the most obvious thing in the world.

"The trade that I know about in prison is not another toothpaste if you gonna have toothpaste. Now, you know what I'm talking about," the inmate replies. The foolishly outspoken teen's confidence visibly shatters before our eyes as the realization of what the inmate is referring to washes over him. "Sexual," he replies, diverting his gaze and making it clear that perhaps he really is rethinking his life's choices, as intended.
