The administrators of Wyndham Girl's College believe their institution is the model of traditional values, proper decorum and girl's deportment. There is however a thriving underground movement at the college of rock music. When the administrators learn just prior to the Christmas break that one of their students, Terry Taylor, is a renowned rock music songwriter using the pseudonym Joanie Harper whose songs contain seductively feminist lyrics, they have to decide how to deal with Terry, an otherwise academically bright student, and this possible scandal to the school.

Interesting that a film like this would contain what I feel is the make-up of the most definitive Bossa Nova singer and jazz sideman ever in history!! Astrud Gilberto with her drier than a dustbowl martini voice...beautiful; the illustrious and late great Stan Getz on tenor, Gary Burton vibes (Berklee School of Music VP), Gene Cherico, bass, and Joe Hunt, drums...Buy the movie just for "The Girl From Ipanema"!! Well worth it!! Musical history!! I've met Astrud after a Midwest concert--she's as wonderful and unassuming in person as is her sweet, sparkling voice!! The best recorded rendition of "Girl From.." is the 1964 recording from Greenwich Village in New York city.
