It centres on Conor, a 14-year-old boy who is troubled by his parents’ relationship, his new school, and money problems. However, he finds a glimmer of hope in a mysterious, über-cool, and beautiful girl, Raphina.

In an attempt to win her heart, he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. But there’s only one problem: He’s not part of a band…yet. Calling himself “Cosmo”, he must deliver what he promises and immerse himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the 80s. He forms a band with a few lads and pour their hearts and souls into their songs.
