Edward Furlong and Natasha Lyonne star in this lively, hard-rocking coming-of-age comedy about four boys desperate to attend a KISS concert in Detroit. In this coming-of-age story, four Midwestern high school students embark on an unstoppable quest for concert tickets to see the rock band KISS. Over the course of one magical night, each undergoes a harrowing and hilarious experience as their insatiable desire to see their favorite band brings them up against the authorities, their parents and the persistent influence of disco. What begins as the passionate pursuit of a rock 'n' roll fantasy becomes a series of hairpin turns and comic misadventures with one overriding goal: the liberty to pursue one's own dreams.
