The film is about Charlie, who leaves his desk job in New York and moves back to his home in Pennsylvania to follow his dream… managing his favorite hometown rock band. Charley truly believes the band’s glory days are ahead. Charlie goes through an emotional tailspin when the band’s guitarist doesn’t agree with his optimism, and his relationship with his girlfriend is on shaky ground. With the help of an elderly neighbor and a young intern, Charlie tries to get the band on track and his girlfriend back before it’s too late. A fun inspiring movie that is not to be missed.
