In 1960's Sacramento two Filipina-American sisters got together with other teenage girls to play music. Little did they know their garage rock band would evolve into the legendary rock group Fanny, the first band of women to release an LP with a major record label.

Despite recording a handful of albums and amassing a dedicated fan base including David Bowie, the band all but disappeared from music history. Featuring interviews with Bonnie Raitt, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and the Go-Gos’ Kathy Valentine, this film not only tells the story of the band's rocking past, but also the next chapter: now in their 60s, the bandmates are recording a new album. Fighting early barriers of race, gender and sexuality in the music industry, the women of Fanny are ready to take their place in the halls of rock 'n' roll fame.

CAST: Jean Millington, June Millington, Brie Darling, Alice de Buhr, Nickey Barclay, Patti Quatro

“An illuminating documentary on the sexism, racism, ageism and homophobia that confronted members of Fanny, which many consider the first all-female rock band.” (Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News)
