Synopsis:

1955. A small working-class American town. Five teenage girls seal a lifelong pact: they will live according to their own rules, and become the Foxfire gang. Legs, Maddy, Lana, Rita and Goldie can not accept any longer to be humiliated and discriminated against for being poor, and being girls. Headed by the feisty Legs, the girls set on a trip for revenge, and try to pursue their impossible dream: living according to their own rules and laws, no matter what. But there’s a price to pay...
