This upbeat comedy, originally written to be performed in a diner, chronicles a night in the life of three members of a third rate Beatles tribute band. How long can they keep putting on flea bitten wigs and frayed suits and doing their act? It depends on which of them is asked and their answers are at turns hilarious and touching.
