Dust Bin Bob runs a second hand shop at the Flea Market on Penny Lane. He has an extensive collection of American R&B singles that he gets from Merchant Marines returning from Baltimore and New York. The action starts when he befriends some blokes by the name of John, Paul, George, and Ringo and becomes their lifelong friend sharing the vinyl that will start a revolution. From then on, it's a rocket ride from the Beatles earliest days in Liverpool to six shows a night in Hamburg to the Cavern Club and to full-fledged Beatlemania. Along the way, Dust Bin Bob thwarts a plot by Marcos loyalists to assassinate the Beatles in Manila after they snub Imelda Marcos, blowing off a reception at the palace and narrowly avoiding an international incident. It could have happened!
