Movie Info

A 12-year-old Canadian girl comes of age thanks to American rock music in this comedy-drama from director Sandy Wilson. The somewhat repressed Sandy Wilcox (Margaret Langrick) is visited by her cousin Butch (John Wildman), a handsome young man from the U.S.A. who passes his favorite musical tracks along to his impressionable younger relative. As the two begin to form a bond, Butch's true mischevious nature is revealed.
