Description: Johnny, a 14 year-old boy from Freehold, New Jersey, hungers to follow in the footsteps of his hero–Bruce Springsteen. Johnny, however, is made cruelly aware that his high-pitched soprano voice sounds more like Celine Dion or Barbra Streisand. He struggles against homophobia at school, even while his own sense of identity is uncertain. Facing brutal rejection from the Freehold High School Glee Club, Johnny sets off for New York City, where lovers, rockers, and Gypsies challenge him to embrace his queerness. He retraces Springsteen’s early career footsteps, hoping to mold himself into the image of his rock god. Does he have what it takes to rock like The Boss?
