Plot Summary

It is another time - Another Place - where the 1950s is mixed with the 1980s. In a city where it is always nighttime, during a concert performing live before a crowd of her fans, rock 'n' roll singer Ellen Aim is kidnapped by motorcyclist Raven Shaddock and his biker gang "The Bombers" on stage. Billy Fish, Ellen's manager, hires Ellen's ex-boyfriend and mercenary Tom Cody, who has arrived in town to visit his sister Reva, to rescue Ellen from the Bomber's nightclub, where they are holding her captive for their own amusement. Joined by ex-soldier and mechanic McCoy who is also in town looking for work, Cody and Fish set out across the rain infested streets inhabited by cops, street gangs and rock fans and into the criminal neighborhood 'The Battery', where Cody, Fish and McCoy prepare to rescue Ellen from the gang. Written by Daniel Williamson

Goofs When the Sorels' bus is stopped by the cop roadblock, as McCoy is pulling the bus to a stop, there's a shot of her in the driver's seat. Seated directly behind Amy Madigan is a middle aged woman who looks like a crew member, present throughout the entire shot. She disappears immediately after the cut and is never seen again, nor was she a passenger on the bus prior to this scene. See more »
