In the 1950s, Maddy (Katie Coseni) has to put up with living during a time where boys and men rule the roost and young women's futures consist of marriage or a job as a secretary.

That changes when Maddy meets Legs (Raven Adamson), a wiry teen who wears an army jacket and wants to stick it to men. Along with Goldie (Claire Mazerolle) and Rita (Madeleine Bisson), they form a girl gang called Foxfire. They have an initiation, complete with homemade tattoos. Their mandate is to wreak havoc on male chauvinists.

However, what starts out as a series of playful pranks eventually turns into serious criminal acts and finally results in the kidnapping of a wealthy man for ransom.

Based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates.
