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 façade of stardom are bittersweet life lessons and mild doses of heartbreak.

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