"Fresh and original."-Los Angeles Times

They say rock 'n' roll never dies, but one dark night in 1963, Eddie Wilson's car took a dive off a Jersey bridge with the troubled rock idol at the wheel.His body was never found.Tom Berenger (Platoon), Michael Pare (Streets of Fire) and Ellen Barkin (Sea of Love) star in this cool, compelling classic that really rocks!

Twenty years after the lead singer (Pare) of "Eddie and the Cruisers" disappeared, the band's songs are hotter than ever.And renewed interest in the band leads TV reporter Maggie Foley (Barkin) to pursue a tantalizing mystery: What if Eddie is still alive?The circumstances surrounding his death are just shadowy enough to make it a distinct possibility, and someone (could it be Eddie?) has been ransacking the homes of the surviving band members in a desperate search for tapes of the group's visionary, never-released album.As Maggie interviews the former "Cruisers," the pieces of the puzzle start to fit
