In 1975, a group of underage, teenaged girls, including then-unknown future rock stars Joan Jett and Lita Ford, got together to form the first ever all-female hard rock band, The Runaways. Signed almost immediately to a major record label deal, the band was dubbed "jailbait rock" by the press and became an overnight media sensation. "Edgeplay" chronicles the rise of the band, its hopes and dreams, and its eventual disintegration as the result of media belittling, in-fighting, and drug use amidst rumors of verbal and emotional abuse by the band's management. Produced and directed by Victory Tischler-Blue (aka Vicki Blue, one of the Runaways' bass players), the film presents an unflinching insider's view of what it was like for six teenaged girls to be thrust into the limelight with minimal adult supervision in a "sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll" era hostile to female musicians.
