The film is a love story set in the 1970s, showing Vince Smith's efforts to date his office colleague Joanna Robinson. Vince attempts to get her to join him at the local disco, but unbeknown to him, Joanna is a punk. This happens against a backdrop of Vince's father Harold becoming a minor celebrity due to his psychic powers, essentially forms of mind reading and telekinesis.
