Struggling artist Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) is trapped in a dull job painting album covers. He is instantly attracted to Kira (Olivia Newton-John), an anonymous rollerskating woman randomly photographed in the background of one of his assignments, but no one is able to identify her. Visiting the auditorium where the cover was shot, Sonny finds the mysterious beauty to be an ageless Greek muse, who encourages him to team up with old-fashioned Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly) to build a roller-skating disco. Yes, you read that right.
Also starring The Tubes, ELO, leg warmers, roller skates, a 1930s & New Wave dance sequence plus plenty of Olivia Newton John songs.
