SUMMARY

Jeannie fights tooth and nail for her right to be recognised by th rock musicians who accept her body but reject her voice. Examining the dark underside of celebrity culture, Girl From Nowhere resonates strongly today. Though Jeannie stumbles on her road to stardom, she is uncompromising as she quietly rebels against what the male-dominated world expects of her.

Texas, 1969, is bursting with vibes of peace, love and rock 'n' roll, but disgraced hell-raising rock singer Jeannie Hogan is dragged back to the oppressive small-town values of a home she thought she’d outgrown. Where does a sweet Southern girl go if she doesn't want to be a sweet Southern girl?

But Jeannie has a confession to make. A tape recorder whirrs as she embarks on a volatile and furious account of lovers, lies and music. We hear of her teenage love for a Texan mechanic, her entanglement with the hippie, junkie drummer Chet Rivers, and her bitter rivalry with press girl Bobbie. Yet, all the while, she’s eager to discover her own sound and craves an audience.
