It is a dull summer night in Batesville, Mississippi and three high school girls - know-it-all Ellen, peace maker Sandy, and introverted dreamer Amy (who's been in love with the Beatles since she was six) - are bored to tears. They discover that Paul McCartney is worth $600 million Ellen suggests they phone him and ask for a million dollars since he'll never miss it. Moreover, Ellen insists that Amy be the one to call as she has a problem with boys and this will fix it. Amy gets through to the rock star and the girls find that there is more to life than money.
