When city boy Ren moves to small town USA, he is in for serious culture shock. After a local drunk driving accident, the town has outlawed all forms of teen rebellion-no late nights, no partying, no rock music, no dancing. But there is one thing that keeps Ren from going totally out of his mind—the minister's daughter, Ariel. Ariel has a rebellious streak too, and it's not long before she and Ren are rallying their friends, and proving to the adults that teen spirit, celebration, and yes, a little rebellion, can't be contained—it's downright contagious!
The themes of this classic movie are timely as ever: freedom of expression, the role of religion in community, defining family values, and—the ultimate perennial—rock n' roll and teen spirit!
