The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a 2005 American film, based on the novel of the same name by Ann Brashares released by Warner Bros. Pictures. It was directed by Ken Kwapis and written by Delia Ephron. Four teenage girls—Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen—who are best friends and have been together all their lives in Bethesda, Maryland, but are about to separate for the summer. Lena is spending the summer in Greece with her grandparents; Tibby is staying at home; Bridget is going to soccer camp in Mexico; and Carmen is visiting her father in South Carolina. The girls go browsing at a local thrift store before they separate for the summer. They convince Tibby to try on a pair of jeans, who in turn makes Lena try them on, then Bridget, then Carmen; they find that the Pants magically fits all four of them perfectly, even though they have different measurements. The girls decide to share the Pants equally among them over the summer as a way of keeping together when they are apart. Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen part the next day, and the film focuses on each girls' journey separately.
