Overview
BANDITS is an exciting, fast-paced, rock and roll road movie following the exploits of an all-female band on the run.

Four women behind bars with nothing in common except their love for rock music form a jailhouse band as part of their rehabilitation. On the night of their first gig at a police banquet, the women overpower a sadistic guard and escape into the night. An agent, who had originally rejected their demo, launches their tape onto the public and overnight, they become media sensations. As the rebels become more successful than their wildest dreams, the police step up their hot pursuit. But it's hard to keep a low profile when your music and videos are everywhere.
