The only thing on young Moonie Pottie's mind is to get out of small town New Waterford. She dreams of being in a cosmopolitan city like Paris, Berlin or New York. Her teacher (Andrew McCarthy) sees promise in the girl, and submits her name to an arts school in NYC. When Lou, a girl from New York and the daughter of a disgraced boxer, moves in next door, she and Moonie slowly become friends. Together they learn about themselves in this coming-of-age story set in grey and oppressive Cape Breton.
