Mark, a teen outcast, rocks a small town by launching an underground pirate radio station from his bedroom. By day, Mark’s a quiet loner at Hubert Humphrey High… but under cover of darkness, he is the raucous, no-holds-barred, shock jock “Hard Harry,” howling anonymously over stolen airwaves to other teens desperate to be understood. When tragedy strikes a classmate, the powers-that-be blame the hard-talking radio pirate and try to hunt him down. Soon, Mark must decide whether to sign off for good or to keep the air alive.
Recommended for audiences age 16 and up.
