Part of "Life on the Edge" series. Every big city has gangs of young people on the margins. In Lagos, Nigeria, it's the area boys, bands of children and teenagers who scratch a living from petty crime and the informal economy. But when you're an area girl, life can be even tougher, especially in Lagos' teeming Ajegunle ghetto. The Area Girls take viewers into their world of street runs, "claiming tough," hawking, bottle fights, and Internet cafe dreams of breaking out into another world: schooling, modeling, family, or simply a decent wage.
