Terry is impressed by his music and is introduced to him by her friend, Lynne (Joan O'Brien). J.R. takes a liking to Terry and invites her to join his band for an upcoming tour.

Despite initial reservations from her music professor, Dr. Meade (Fred Clark), Terry decides to go on the tour with J.R.'s band as a backup singer. She is excited to perform and see the world but also nervous about leaving behind her studies and boyfriend, Craig (Chris Noel). As the tour progresses, Terry finds herself drawn to J.R.'s charisma and the thrill of being on stage.

Meanwhile, Craig is struggling to keep his relationship with Terry intact, as he feels neglected by her absence and jealous of J.R.'s influence on her. He seeks comfort in Lynne, who is also struggling with her own love life and feelings for J.R.
