Gillian Armstrong has a love for adventurous fashion and her 1982 film is a new-wave extravaganza.
Jackie Mullens (Jo Kennedy) dreams of becoming a singing star.
After a spot at the hip club in town fails to win Jackie any paying gigs, her cousin and manager Angus enters her in a major talent competition to be held on New Year’s Eve.
If Jackie wins, her career is assured, and the $25K grand prize will help keep her family’s pub open.
