Synopsis: It’s 1978. The '60s are over and Reaganomics is just around the corner… At the Pierson School, a private boarding school for girls, Maggie Guthrie and Peggy Norris are roommates and best friends. Unwittingly, Peggy finds herself in the middle of a tug-of-war between the past and the future when a lecherous music teacher, two well-meaning counselors, a domineering new dean of students and a 12-year-old Iranian student all converge and explode, leaving Peggy’s life in tatters.
