A teenage misfit starts a band only to instantly lose
control to the school bully. Though failing to salvage his
project, he however gains something more worthwhile.

New Zealand 1980. Stephen is sick of being a shy, misfit loser at high school. He wants to be more popular and maybe get a girlfriend? Having just discovered punk rock he determines to form a band. Stephen’s plan gets off to a bad start though, when his homemade electric guitar attracts the attention of school roughneck Ricky, who fancies himself as the singer and takes over the band. Initially his aggressive personality suits being a punk singer and it looks like the band might even work out for Stephen? However, Ricky’s rough mates Jason and Brent, are not keen on his nerdy new friend and make some plans of their own. The whole shebang seems destined to come to a disastrous end - can Stephen salvage anything from the wreckage?
