The Buzz on Flying By



A successful, middle-aged businessman goes to his 25th high school reunion without his wife, and finds his teenage band still together and playing. He joins them for a set and is pushed to reunite for a few gigs.

He and his daughter have a good relationship, and she is aware of some tension between her parents.

His real estate development business is going through a rough period, and when a gig at a river bar is successful, George considers a return to music.

When the band is booked as a last minute replacement to open for a reunion tour stop, the promoter wants them to join the tour. The crowd loves them and one woman is particularly friendly.

Conflicts with one band guy's drug issues, and continual problems in his business present roadblocks. His wife's accusations add further problems.

The tour opportunity forces George to make the tough decision to pursue his teenage dream of being in a rock & roll band, knowing that his marriage, family and business are at risk.
