Looking for an easy gig, a down-and-out wannabe rock star takes a temp teaching job at a posh boarding school. Instead he finds a classroom full of uptight kids with a gap in their education-the art of rock 'n' roll. Soon the kids are reading, writing and rocking, getting ready for a battle of the bands competition!
