The year is 2002. Joel Larsen is thirty-four years old, but has never really done anything special with his life. His parents are divorced, and his sister is a drug addict. But when Cheryl, his sister, puts him through a freakish accident, he is sent back to 1981, and suddenly he gets the chance most people dream of: to be a teen all over again. He first freaks out when he realizes he has to go through the 80s one more time, where everybody he knows is young again, while everything he used to know is gone and replaced by old-fashioned things. But slowly he accepts his new-old reality and decides to make all the wrong things he did right again. Written by

Did You Know?
The Wham! song "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" plays on the radio in 1981. However, the song was not released until May 5, 1984. See more
Why are you doing this?
Because I care about you, Joel.
And using your parents against you felt really right to me!
