FULL SYNOPSIS

In this comedy drama, three exuberant high-school graduates finally find a direction in life when they decide to fix-up a ramshackle Catskill resort and turn it into a little slice of rock & roll heaven for teens. They work hard to make the repairs and pay the over $8,000 in back taxes. When locals hear of their plans, they misunderstand and try to stop the young men as do wicked industrialists and the corrupt president of the town council who want to use the locale to dump toxic wastes. The lively soundtrack features songs by [[Performer~P85557~Phil Collins~philcollins]], [[Performer~P41806~Julian Lennon~julianlennon]], [[Performer~P2087~Arcadia~arcadia]], and [[Performer~P71539~Pete Townshend~petetownshend]]. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
