: Teenager Will Burton (Gaelan Connell) lives in his head, and his head is filled with music. When his mother, Karen Burton (Lisa Kudrow), gets a new job in New Jersey, Will starts his junior year at a new school only to find the old cliques still apply, but rock-n-roll rules the scene. Perpetually a misfit, Will strikes up a friendship with like-minded outsider Sa5m (the 5 is silent, Vanessa Hudgens). They are both surprised when the school's "it" girl, Charlotte Banks (Aly Michalka) recruits Will to help assemble a band to compete in "Bandslam," a battle of the bands that is "Texas High School Football BIG." Charlotte's ex-boyfriend Ben Wheatly (Scott Porter) is poised to win with his band Glory Dogs - Springsteen wannabes down to their hats. For the first time in his life, Will finds he is uniquely suited to not only participate in something, but to truly make a difference.
