This musical satire of 1964 presents the legendary British mushroom caps in the tension between appearance and escape from the euphoric fans, who got out of hand take up the pursuit of the Beatles, where they emerge again as well.

The daily life of the four Liverpool Musician John (John Lennon), Paul (Paul McCartney), George (George Harrison) and Ringo (Ringo Starr) is not simple: On the way into the television studio where the popular band will appear in a live show, they succeed and their Manager Norm (Norman Rossington), once again, only with great difficulty and almost desperate ingenuity to escape from their lurking everywhere, frantic supporters.
