Rockstar Rick James asks the A-team to help a friend and colleague of his, C.J. Mack, who is about to be released from Rockford State Penitentiary after ten years for dozing off in his Maserati causing a fatal accident, as he stopped communicating. They are just in time to prevent him being killed by the dressed-up prisoners and real guard Quint who want him to tell the hiding place inside for the tapes he made of their hold-ups while on work details outside. It all goes to easy, and indeed two-faced prison warden Crichton gets his man Quint out and decides to eliminate C.J.- so the team gets Rick James and several major stars, including Lionel Richie, to offer doing a rock benefit no politician dares turn down, so they can get in as crewmen...

That's crazy, man. You ain't no truck driver, or a surgeon. You don't retire or grow to old to do what you do. You can't. What you do is you. It's something inside you. And nothing can get rid of it. Unless you die.
What do you do when the wonder is gone
