Everything is cool: the neon-colored dresses, the cheeky looks and most of all the music. It's the 1980s and New Wave music roller-coasters its way across Europe. And Harry, 19, wants to be part of it. Nobody would call his job as a bank clerk cool, but his friends certainly are. Vince, Melitta and Freddie are musicians, and managing their band, Apollo Schwabing, is supposed to be Harry's stairway to his dreams...
