Raised by his single mother after the abrupt departure of his father, Jim MacLaine (David Essex) is a restless British youth. Leaving home to find his place in the world, Jim eventually meets kindred spirit Mike (Ringo Starr). The two lads get into plenty of trouble as they shirk responsibility and chase women, but ultimately Jim has to decide on a career, and dreams of becoming a rock 'n' roll star. Can Jim make it as musician, or will he remain stuck in a mundane rut?
