It’s the late 1950s in up-state New York. A group of teenage girls, abused by men, mocked by teachers and subjugated by society, decide to seize destiny in their own hands and form a gang – ‘Foxfire’. From small acts of rebellion and revenge the gang slowly moves on to more complex crimes, finally culminating in a shocking deed that will tear apart the lives of its young members (including Raven Adamson, Katie Coseni, Madeleine Bisson and Claire Mazerolle).
