Heart and Soul
A band of 30 high school girls brave tensions and heartbreak to triumph at Europe’s top music festivals.
The band is enjoying its most successful line-up in the band’s 22 year history but they are about to be torn apart by their own rule: when a member graduates from high school, she leaves the band – a third of them are set to graduate. With their bi-annual European tour looming, the Sweathearts face a daunting choice.
When the band is hit by three sudden departures, they struggle to present a united front. With pressure from schoolwork, part-time jobs and a hectic schedule of gigs, their preparation for Europe is rocky.
The tensions finally settle and the last gig is a triumph. Amid tearful goodbyes, musical director Ross announces the possibility of a US tour.
As one dream ends, a new one begins.
