Radio Rebel - Official Synopsis

The story follows Tara Adams, an introverted high school junior who, alone in her room at home, casts herself as Radio Rebel, host of a nightly podcast on which she showcases her passion for music and self-expression. However at school, a shy Tara can't bring herself to speak in class, especially when the newly-popular rocker Gavin is around. Radio Rebel quickly gains fans on campus, especially when her show lands on a big local radio station. Her fellow students believe Radio Rebel gives a voice to everyone on the social scale, encouraging them to abandon cliques and celebrate each other's differences. As students clamor to learn the identity of Radio Rebel and the show's popularity extends across Seattle, Tara's two worlds begin to collide, and soon she is faced with keeping her on-air identity a secret or revealing who she really is.
