Cast: 4m., 2w. All is copacetic in the fall of the new school year as junior Leo Borlock settles in to produce his moderately popular school TV show, The Hot Seat, and keep himself safely behind the camera and out of anybody's line of fire. His safe existence implodes with the arrival of the weirdly fabulous Stargirl, whose impetuous enthusiasm for all-things-Leo forces him to choose between his own secure conformity and the glories offered by the girl from the stars. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
