Synopsis

Gypsy, 25, stunning, wraps herself in shawls and sequins just like her lifelong idol, rock goddess Stevie Nicks. There's a brilliant song inside Gypsy, but years of fear and anger choke her voice. Clive is a beautiful, skinny eighteen-year-old boy who powders his face and paints his lips death-black is full of drive, talent and youthful dreams. He adores Gypsy but believes one day he'll find true, deep love in the arms of a guy. Two outcasts who feel small-town Sandusky, Ohio closing in on them, Gypsy and Clive lose themselves in Gothic fantasies, soothed by the retro sounds of The Cure, Siouxie and the Banshees, and Bauhaus. Their daydreams help them escape daily abuse from a town that takes great exception to those who don't fit in. When Gypsy and Clive learn about the annual "Night of 1000 Stevies" in New York City, their deep-seeded dreams are unleashed. With Clive's encouragement, Gypsy crushes her fears and vows to be the best Stevie Nicks impersonator Gotham has ever seen. They pile into a '79 Trans Am and begin a journey for acceptance. In five hundred miles they will reach New York, but not before colliding head-on with the judgments of both society and themselves.
