Five boys and a girl make up a gang and are fans of Beat bands, following them from concert to concert. Juli, fiancée of one of the boys, falls in love with a musician and travels to the countryside with him for a gig. The jealous fiancé and his friends go after them and the whole affair comes close to violence when suddenly the lover allows Juli to make her own choice. This noble gesture rekindles Juli’s true love for him.
