Goldie, Lana, Legs, Maddy and Rita live in a working class neighbourhood of 1950s upstate New York. The teenagers are poor but are also viewed as the weaker sex by the male gangs who rule the mean streets. So Legs decides to form a secret female society called Foxfire, devoted to ending the humiliation and intimidation so women can enjoy the same freedoms and privileges. It's a noble ideal but the girls quickly learn that every action has a consequence.
