Alice Ripley-Led SUGAR! Film Launches Kickstarter Page to Help Fund Post-Production

SUGAR! is also about the wild world of rock music contrasted with the comfort and security of hearth and home. Leslie, our main character, navigates a crisis in which she tries, albeit clumsily, to straddle both worlds. It's all a balancing act, one which shakes up Leslie's entire world, forcing her to confront her home life, career, and sexuality. And confront them she does. As the old saying goes, we like people for their best qualities, but we love them for their imperfections.

Responding to a dare, Leslie, a housewife and mid-fifties piano teacher, secretly forms an all-women rock band, SUGAR! At the same time, her husband, a conservative Republican, runs for the U.S. Congress. The band goes viral as "MILF" musicians. When her husband and college-bound daughter discover the secret, all hell breaks loose. Meanwhile, Leslie has a clandestine affair with a younger bartender and almost destroys the band. In the end, her marriage, the band's fate, and her husband's election remain cliffhangers, but victory is in the air.
