In 1998, Danny, Mitch, Gil and Rory, formerly known as long-forgotten, early 1980s one-hit wonder band, The Suburbans, reunite to perform their only hit single at one of the band members' wedding. After the gig, Cate, an up-and-coming record company executive, approaches them and suggests to shoot a pay-per-view reunion show that would eventually re-establish the band's claim to fame. The four, more reluctantly than not, agree and subsequently face the ramifications on their personal lives as the show's production contrasts their former rock 'n' roll image with their now middle-class, suburban lifestyle. It soon becomes evident that Cate is probably the only remaining fan of the band, who, out of a personal interest in the matter, put her own career at stake.
