A washed up Vegas lounge singer, Jack Satin (Hamilton von Watts), has no money, no job, and delusional aspirations of fame. When Jack is forced to leave Vegas, he packs up his convertible cruiser and hits the road for Atlantic City. Call it poetic justice, but his trusty classic dies in the desert and Jack is left stranded in the tiny town of Lost Springs.

There, Jack stumbles across jazz legend turned mechanic, Doc Bishop (Robert Guillaume), and a dreamy eyed bartender, Lauren Wells (Melissa Joan Hart), who make him see there is more to life than marquee signs and packed rooms.

Doc encourages Jack to explore his true love of music while Lauren provides the audience he has always craved. Just as Jack realizes the town has more to offer him than the bright lights of the big city, his Vegas past catches up with him -- what unfolds is comedy at the crossroads of life.
