The story? It's 1961. The music scene is red hot. Every week sees another classic track released, with Del Shannon, Roy Orbison, Phil Spector, Eddie Cochran and Helen Shapiro topping the charts. There's a national song writing competition up for grabs. And emotions run high as talented young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win the competition, win the hearts of their fans and win Laura's heart. But there's more to Laura than meets the eye. And she gives them a real run for their rock 'n' roll money!
