Meet Maureen Brennan, a young woman coming of age in late 1960s St. John's, NFLD. There is no one like Maureen, the second youngest daughter of the Sarge, a mother so bitter, so angry about her fate that she bullies her children and her husband. School is torture, with the nuns watching every move she makes. Maureen wants to go to sexy, exciting Montreal and be part of Expo 67, even if it means faking her way into the school choir. Once there, Maureen escapes the vigilant eye of Sister Imobilis and sneaks out into the city.
