Kids who define success in dollars, happiness by what they drive, and popularity by what they wear are showing symptoms of a disease experts call "affluenza." Meets Jakiya, 16, a single mother who works two jobs to support her wardrobe. Features positive examples of spoiled kids who turned their lives around when they learned the difference between what they need and what they want. Heidi's one goal was to buy the things she thought would make her popular until she was sent to live with her mother's poor family on their ranch in Mexico. All learned to appreciate what they have by experiencing what others do not, and they gained a more mature understanding of the value of money.
