A few days later, their gigs are highly valued rock’n’roll-insiders’ tips. But nevertheless, Rick and the Rich Kids have to deal with the hardships of show business. The band is joined by a shy boy from the South Hamburg district of Wilhelmsburg who wants to become a famous pop star, and by his flamboyant girlfriend.
