San Diego, California, 1969. L’undicenne William vive con la protettiva madre Elaine e la ribelle sorella Anita, la quale lascia l’abitazione materna per garantirsi una vita libera e non sottoposta ad asfissianti controlli. Ricevuto in regalo da Anita una serie di dischi dei divi del momento, William scopre la magia della musica rock. Quattro anni dopo, sempre più appassionato, William riesce a contattare Lester Bangs, direttore della rivista musicale “Creems”, il quale gli offre di collaborare con il suo giornale scrivendo un articolo sui Black Sabbath. Per realizzare un’intervista, William entra in contatto con la band degli Stillwater, i quali prima lo trattano con sufficienza come se fosse un fan, poi, quando capiscono la possibilità di essere oggetto di un articolo, lo accolgono all’interno della loro crew. Qui William conosce Penny Lane, una groupie (quelle ragazze che seguono un gruppo rock in tournée per soddisfarne gli appetiti sessuali), e se ne innamora, nonostante essa sia legata al leader del gruppo Russell Hammond. Entrato nel giro, William parte per il tour e vede da vicino un mondo fittizio, fatto di rapporti di facciata, droghe, sesso e tanta musica inebriante. L’articolo che William deve scrivere per la prestigiosa rivista “Rolling Stone” finisce per essere una stroncatura senza mezzi termini. Nel frattempo Russel torna con la compagna Lesile e Penny, per la delusione, tenta il suicidio con i barbiturici. Grazie all’intervento di William la ragazza ha salva la vita. L’adolescente, approfittando dello stato incosciente di Peggy, le dichiara tutto il suo amore

Trama: Il dodicenne Danny è figlio di una coppia di genitori separatisi alcuni anni prima. Susan, la madre di Danny, decide di sposarsi con il benestante e ammirato Rick. Il ragazzo non prova simpatia per l'uomo, ma Frank, suo padre, con il quale il fanciullo ha un ottimo rapporto, lo convince a dargli una chance. Durante la celebrazione del matrimonio, Frank nota che l'arrivo improvviso di un uomo scuote la sicurezza ostentata da Rick. L'uomo è Ray Coleman, vecchio socio d'affari del patrigno. Col passare dei giorni i rapporti tra Danny e il patrigno non migliorano, anzi degenerano quando, per caso, una sera, Danny assiste all'omicidio di Coleman da parte del patrigno. Non creduto né dalla polizia, né dal padre (anche perché Rick ha occultato il cadavere bruciandolo in un forno per cuocere mattoni), Danny si sente minacciato dalla presenza di Rick che non esita a intimorirlo per mantenere il suo silenzio. Frank, intanto, inizia ad indagare su Rick, visto che la polizia ha di fatto archiviato il caso, e scopre che era complice di Ray Coleman in un caso di estorsione e tentato omicidio. Mentre tenta di mettersi in contatto con la polizia, Rick sopraggiunge nella fabbrica di barche di sua proprietà e, dopo una colluttazione, appicca un incendio con l'intenzione di ucciderlo. Scampato miracolosamente al fuoco, contattata Susan - la quale ha capito tutto perché ha notato che Rick, tornato a casa, si è medicato un principio di ustione - Frank raggiunge Rick e ingaggia un furioso corpo a corpo con lui, a seguito del quale, grazie anche all'intervento risolutore di Danny, il malvivente muore folgorato
