Fifteen year-old Jill is a talented dancer but a failing student, yet pretends to her mother Ellen that "school is fine." She continues to spend her time with parties and dating rather than study. One date goes too far and Jill is panicked about possible pregnancy. Jill continues her downhill slide until Ellen receives a letter from school that Jill will be suspended if she doesn't turn her grades around. Shocked, Ellen grounds Jill big time; no dance, no dates, no parties; only study until she passes her finals. But can that work with a teen-ager? Jill tries hard to get her life back on track but an old boyfriend tricks her away for an overnight. That's no way to study for a test. Will she ever get to pass her finals and dance again?
