Slaves to the Underground Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Set in the Seattle "grunge music" scene of the early 1990s, this comedy-drama tackles serious issues of sexual politics and identity, representing a departure for director Kristine Peterson, previously relegated to such low-brow horror and thriller genre fare as Kristine Peterson (1991) and Kristine Peterson (1994). The leaders of the all-girl punk band No Exit are Shelly (Molly Gross) and Suzy (Marisa Ryan), who are also involved in a passionate sexual relationship and living together. While Suzy is a lesbian and feminist activist, Shelly is more conflicted and is led on missions to get revenge on a right-wing radio talk show host and the man who once raped Shelly. After bumping into him at a show, Shelly becomes enamored once again of her ex-boyfriend Jimmy (Jason Bortz), the publisher of an alternative comic 'zine mulling over an offer to become a corporate sell-out with a job at Microsoft. As No Exit is about to land a recording contract, the meltdown of Shelly and Suzy's love affair threatens the band's future. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
