June 1983. Before dawn, the uncommonly beautiful Katherine wakes up on yet another luxury yacht in Saint Tropez. Calvin, having slept on a beach nearby, is woken by seagulls. 800 miles away in London, Danny wakes up in his messy student flat having fallen asleep playing guitar. And Amy, she isn’t sleeping. Following another agonising one night stand, she returns to the student flat she shares with Danny and Calvin.
Katherine has a secret which strangles her paradisiacal life Saint Tropez. Calvin has a dilemma that rational thought can’t help with. Danny has a problem with a bullying drummer. And, Amy’s sick with love for Danny. As the story’s layers unfold these characters come to rely on each evermore. They just require one more soul to begin their Rock ‘n’ Roll adventure.
Raphael has the talent and the desire but will Calvin and Danny have enough impact to sway him to join their band or will they need Amy’s help?
