Beneath the surface of their carefree strumming sessions in Stu’s mom’s basement, ambitions stir within the band. Doubts arise, and the camaraderie is tested as the members question each other’s motives, wondering if they can collectively reach the pinnacle of Rock & Roll stardom.
Tensions escalate, propelling The Hound Dogs toward an unexpected gig before a sizable audience, a challenge they are ill-prepared to face. Faced with the looming prospect of failure on stage, a talented newcomer, Danny Bruer, joins in and helps to save the day.
