This is a film about girlhood. At Rock'n'Roll Camp, girls ranging in age from eight to 18 are taught that it's okay to sweat like a pig, scream like a banshee, wail on their instruments with complete and utter abandon, and that "it is 100 percent okay to be exactly who you are". The film follows several campers: Laura, a Korean adoptee obsessed by death metal; Misty, who is emerging from a life of meth addiction, homelessness and gang activity; and Amelia, an eight-year-old who writes experimental rock songs about her dog Pipi. What happens to the girls as they are given a temporary reprieve from being sexualised, analysed and pressured to conform is truly moving and revolutionary.
