A tale of teenage life in 1960s Bristol. Leather-jacketed Johnnie gets his kicks burning it up on his bike with factory-worker friends, until dangerous antics lose him his licence. Boredom beckons until switched-on youth club leader Mr Smith (Kenneth More) offers him the chance to form a pop group in the church hall, where Johnnie is smitten by Smith’s gorgeous daughter Anne (Anneke Wills). It’s not long before Johnnie and his new mates are twanging guitars, practising Shadows steps, singing a catchy theme song with calliope accompaniment, and working towards Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
