Sara is a good-family girl, she has never been with a man, does not drinks, does not take drugs...But following her love, she enters in "el Calentito" a pub where the group "las Siux" is singing. The night will end terribly, but she will meet the singers and, due to some coincidences, she becomes part of it. There, she will know about sex&drugs&rock&roll; discovering a new world in a hilarious way. They are going to do their first big concert, but, the same day, (22-F), there is a a rebellion against Government. What will be their future? It is quite absurd and funny, and, which is unusual, it reflects quite well the collision of cultures of the moment (the 80's in Spain), the conservatism against the "movida". The film seeks to make you enjoy your time and it does it quite well, bad acting, worse directing, but, well funny and entertaining. If you want to laugh a little, this is not a bad film, but well, it will not pass to history of cinema...
