Plot Summary

*May Contain Spoilers* Dennis attends a school with a very strict dress code and, although he is their football team's star striker, he feels out of place, missing the glamorous mother who walked out on the family, leaving him feeling estranged from his father. After being attracted to a fashion magazine he befriends free-spirited school-mate Lisa, a talented would-be designer, who persuades him to model a dress she has made. Initially he feels awkward but takes to the cross-dressing as his own form of rebellion and wears the dress to school, passing himself off as a French girl, but he is exposed and expelled by the stony headmaster. With no Dennis the soccer team looks doomed in a cup final against a superior side but Lisa has an idea and the whole team takes to the field in dresses, defying the head to expel them too if Dennis cannot play. As a result he helps win the cup and is declared a hero, reunited with his father, though he is still expelled - until he discovers the headmaster's own guilty secret. Written by don @ minifie-1
