Stashed by her parents into an all-girls boarding school in Connecticut, a new girl is befriended by a group of dynamic young women who call themselves the D.A.R. The initials stand for Daughters of the American Ravioli: Basically, the girls get together to eat stolen canned food and share their most secret desires and then pledge to help each other achieve them, no matter what the cost. One night they find out that the school is going co-ed, and the D.A.R. is instantly split. Half of them think it's the greatest idea since Midol. The other half thinks it would be a disaster and mounts an elaborate scheme to stop the boys' invasion. Who wins out?
