It's the early 60's, and Jack Solow dreams of playing the jazz clubs of New York City's 52nd Street with his own band. His reality it's one audition after another leading to a string of gigs at weddings and out of town dives where the only criterion seems to be: do you have a car? Given one year by the band members to achieve stardom as a jazz group, Jack believes there's nothing more important in life than reaching that goal. Only when Jack meets Benita, a dancing teacher and free spirit, does he begin to wonder if perhaps there might be more to life than eternal rejection. Finally, when Lee, the band's bass player, gets the chance to sit in with a prestigious jazz performer leaving the group in the lurch, Jack goes to Herculean and comical heights to save what turns out to be the group's last booking but acknowledges that his dream of his own jazz band has vanished. In the end with Benita by his side, Jack surprises himself, realizing that there might be more than one way of defining success.
