Life in the grungy Seattle alternative rock scene provides the framework of this drama that centers on Stevie, the gravelly voiced lead singer of the band Scuba Boy. Despite her affectations, Stevie is a spoiled, self-centered young women with plenty of attitude, but very little talent. Her rival is her Japanese cousin Yukari who comes to Seattle for a visit and ends up joining the band as a talented guitarist. Soon the charming and ambitious Yukari cons a promoter into a video deal, and horns in on Stevie's relationship with guitar-playing Wally.
