Thunderbowl, la banda de Jeremy, es excelente, y acaba de conseguir su primera gran oportunidad: una serie de tocadas en el bar local. El problema es que Jeremy debería estar al corriente con sus trabajos para la escuela, pero pasa casi todas las noches en el escandaloso club tratando de mantener a la banda unida. Equilibrar los sueños de éxito con la realidad de la industria de la música obligará a Jeremy a tomar decisiones muy difíciles.

Jeremy's band, Thunderbowl, is hot, and they have had their first big break—a long-term gig at a local bar. The problem is that while Jeremy should be keeping up with his school work, he is spending most nights in a rowdy club, trying to keep the band together. Balancing dreams of success with the realities of the music business force Jeremy to make tough choices.
