In 1964, Guy Patterson (Tom Everett Scott) joins his friends Jimmy and Lenny in their beat group, the Wonders. After playing at a pasta joint, they garner a local following, and are eventually offered a contract for a record and tour by Play-Tone Records' Mr White (Tom Hanks, who also writes and directs). As the band achieve pop stardom with their single, 'That Thing You Do', the pressures of success begin to take their toll.
