Alex and his friend Sam have landed in trouble because of Sam’s not-so-brilliant ideas before, but never anything serious. Then they meet Twilight Stevens, whose idea of a good time is sneaking away to New York City to see a rock concert and hiding out in her father’s apartment while trying to escape from a gang of thugs.
