Two marginalized, low-income women strike up a friendship on the streets of 1980s Portland, forming a transgressive punk rock band. As they chase success, the personal traumas of their pasts and the rampant sexism around them threaten to destroy the bond they've built.
Two women start a band that becomes the beginning of the riot grrrl movement in the late '80s - early '90s.
In 1980s Portland, a spirited but troubled young rocker works at a dingy strip club when she meets a musically talented runaway, and the two quickly bond over aspirations of punk rock stardom. They form a band and become known for their unapologetically angry, feminist message, but as their success grows, tensions and drug addictions create a rift that threatens everything they’ve worked for.
