Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this entertaining comedy, it is 1966 and in Recklinghausen, an industrial city in northwest Germany, a group of young teens is picked up by the police for some wild antics at a Rolling Stones concert. All are would-be rock musicians and during their interrogation at the police station, the teens formulate the idea of getting a band together. Sure enough, they manage to round up the necessary instruments and other paraphernalia, eventually decide on a female lead singer (though they are not exactly in agreement on how good she is), and voilà, "The Heartbreakers" is launched as a new pop group. Now all they have to do is to get their music rolling -- and maybe get over the personal problems that plague some of them, such as the lead singer's difficult home life.
