On the last day of summer vacation in 1962, friends Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), Steve (Ronny Howard), Terry (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat) cruise the streets of small-town California while a mysterious disc jockey (Wolfman Jack) spins classic rock'n'roll tunes.

Why is American Graffiti so good?
The strength of American Graffiti is that it builds this nostalgic image, for the most part, without addressing the changes that are soon to come head-on.
