Synopsis: According to producers, "The Athens University basketball team hasn't won a game in 30 years. But when spunky transfer student Lysistrata Jones (Murin) dares the squad’s fed-up girlfriends to stop 'giving it up' to their boyfriends until they win a game, their legendary losing streak could be coming to an end. In this boisterous new musical comedy, Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse give Aristophanes' classic comedy a sexy, modern twist and take student activism to a whole new level."
