Danny (Danny Jordano), Spikes (Matthew Penn) and Silk (Leon W. Grant) have just finished high school in New York City and are wondering what their next step will be. Danny receives the title to a big house in a rural community and gets the idea to refurbish it, turning it into a rock 'n' roll hotel. With some aid from investors, they're on their way.
