Almost Famous tells the story of a teen journalist, William Miller, who goes on the road with an up-and-coming rock band called Stillwater.

Miller's mentor, legendary rock critic Lester Bangs, cautions him not to befriend the musicians.

But Miller takes it a step further and befriends both the band and the girls who hang around with the band, especially Penny Lane.

Miller is in for a wild ride around the country, to thrilling concerts and debauched parties, living the life many teens dream about.

He discovers that beneath the glittery fa├žade of stardom are bittersweet life lessons and mild doses of heartbreak.

More impacting are the friendships he finds with his glamorous travel companions.
