Life is a mystery for teenager Marty.
Marty’s parents grew up in the era of the 60s revolution. Jacque – his father – took part in student riots in Paris in 1968 and after meeting Anne – his mother – they both escaped to America in search of freedom and pursuit of happiness. And Marty? His life is fairly boring and goes on spending his time with friends in a local diner and escaping the tyrannic Principal O’Brien. For some that might be the dream, but not for Marty who’s mother left when he was young. As he’s looking for a way to follow in his mother’s rebellious footsteps, he comes to possess a magical diary, allowing everything Marty writes in the diary to come true. However, will Marty write the wrong thing? Let Madonna songs give us the answer.
