Santa Cruz High School is plagued by teen anxieties, fervent desires, and fiercely protected secrets. And one girl Raylene who is hell bent on creating an American Marching Band. The motley Band members strive to create themselves and their music—discordance all around—when mysterious exchange student Camille shows up with the kind of classical musical mastery they all crave. Plus she’ll save you from hearing the crushing pulsations of high school rejection. Instead you’ll hear music—until you don’t hear anything but music at all. A dark, comedic, and music-filled exploration of what it means to make art out of the chaos of your life and what it feels like to come of age in the first decade of a new century.
