Josie, Melody and Val are life-long friends from Riverdale determined to take their band out of the garage and into the stratosphere--while staying true to their own look, style and sound. Neither their look nor their sound is trendy, but they mean every word they sing. And when nobody shows up at their gigs, they understand that real musicians have to pay their dues. Unfortunately, the Pussycats live in a glitz-obsessed world where trends change every week, and status symbols rule. Then one day everything changes. Josie and the Pussycats are "discovered" by hot-shot manager Wyatt Frame who presents them to MegaRecords CEO Fiona as the next best thing, and instantly positions them for success beyond their wildest dreams. Within days, they have a number one single in the country, everyone is wearing cat ears and they are swarmed by fans. But soon they learn that Fiona and Wyatt have devised a high-tech scheme to control the youth of America through subliminal messages in songs--their songs.
