Mooney Pottie (Balaban) is a 15-year-old misfit who will do anything to get out of dreary New Waterford, N.S. Lou Benzoa (Spencer-Nairn) is a tough girl from the Bronx who couldn’t be happier to be moving to the seaside hamlet. Lou is as extroverted and impulsive as Mooney is shy and withdrawn, and soon their unlikely friendship starts turning the town upside down. Lou wins over the local girls by punishing their two-timing boyfriends, while Mooney plans a new life in New York City. Hilarious and exuberant, New Waterford Girl paints a touching picture of coming-of-age in a small town.
