The film is a fast-paced, almost plotless musical-comedy showing the adventures of a band of friends, teddy boys, and rock n' roll chicks, whose crazy, fun-loving habits inspire jiving from some citizens and bitter complaints from others.

A prominent jeans company owner feels that the kids' bad reputation is adversely affecting the sales and public image of his product. Prevailing upon the youths to help, he engineers a series of promotional stunts to lighten the public's opinion of these good-hearted rock n roll naïfs and their lovely jeans. An unscrupulous politician makes things difficult for the youngsters, but everything turns out well in the end.
