This movie is set in Japan in year 1969. and it shows a group of teenage boys whose main obsessions are beautiful girls and rock and roll. Under the new wave of freedom and liberty in those years, they want to organize a school festival like the ones in America and in the same time in protest to the Vietnamese war. The main characters are Yazaki and Adama, both mischievous and trouble-makers. Adama falls in love with "Lady Jane", a beautiful girl by the name of Kazuko Matsui and he wants to impress her as the leader of the group that's organizing the festival. The movie is fun, but I wouldn't really recommend it unless you've watched other Japanese movies before and if you're not into their inside jokes and sense of humor, because otherwise you won't find the movie really that fun.
