A coming-of-age biopic about the 1970’s American all-girl teenage rock band The Runaways. From the beginning of five teenage girls dressed in leather and lingerie performing rock and roll music, to the height of fame signed with Mercury Records and sold out shows, to the bands breakup in April 1979 – the story is told of the band’s short, successful, and tempestuous existence.
