1977: Four teenage sisters from the Philippines who dream of becoming pop stars find themselves performing on public access TV in rural Tennessee. Things take a disturbing turn when one of the sisters goes missing.


The Reed Sisters: an American Story traces the life and times of the Reed Sisters, a teenage Filipina-Hawaiian Country-Western Rock and Pop group, and their dogged attempt to achieve a dream of being big stars.








In the microcosm of a small town public access TV show lies a  story that considers identity, the consequences of striving for the “American Dream”, the bond between sisters, and finally, what really matters in the long run?

The Reed Sisters Variety Show aired on public access TV in Oak Ridge, TN between 1976-1984 and was known by only a handful of people but those that were lucky enough to find it wouldn’t forget it.
