During the visit of The Beatles to Melbourne in 1964, a group of five teenagers from wildly different backgrounds, intending to see the concert, instead become trapped in the plant (equipment) room in the basement of the hotel. In this situation they learn about each other's anxieties, hopes and dreams. This blend between 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' and 'The Breakfast Club' is still worthwhile, and is a find for fans of the Beatles as it contains archival footage of their visit to Melbourne as well as containing four Beatles songs. It was filmed in Wellington - standing in as Melbourne.
