Conrad Birdie is a chart-topping rock-and-roll star. Women love him; men want to be him; and teenage girls around the country scream at the mention of his name. But when the U.S. Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson sees his job in jeopary (much to the delight of longtime love Rose Alvarez, who can't wait for Albert to ditch the music business and become something respectable, like an English teacher).
Desperate for a publicity stunt big enough to help them survive Birdie's departure, Albert and Rose devise a plan: send Conrad to small-town America to plant his goodbye kiss on one lucky fan for the entire world to see. Their selection of super fan Kim Macafee sends the wholesome enclave of Sweet Apple, Ohio into chaos.
