Kevin Bacon stars in this classic tale of teen angst and repression, combining terrific dance choreography with a sizzling soundtrack. Ren (Bacon) is a streetwise city teenager who moves to a conservative rural community where rock music and public dancing are prohibited. Together with the local minister's daughter (Lori Singer) the young man struggles to revitalize the spirit of the townspeople.
