David, Clifford and Dale think of themselves as hard rocking ‘Legends’. They audition for West Mall Corporation’s Christmas Show and are contracted to play to hordes of children in malls and shopping centres during the holidays.
The band develops a split identity. Clifford sees himself as a rocker with attitude, determined to live the rock and roll dream. The more successful they become the more negative and resentful Clifford becomes.
From a nervous beginning, David develops into a lead guitarist with flair and discovers an unexpected gift for song writing and composition.
Dale develops his people skills; he is the one who holds the band together when it seems musical conflicts will drive them apart.
Irene joins the band which causes complications when she falls in love with David.
Disturbed by this blossoming love affair, Irene’s mother Ingrid dusts off their cabaret act and books a six-week cruise on the Pacific Princess, sailing to Osaka in Japan.
Irene is faced with the decision: does she go on the cruise and perform with her mother, or stay with David and the band?
The big musical finale occurs when the band is invited to take part in an Australia Day spectacular, a cavalcade of rock and roll at the Superdome.
