The year is 1956 and in a little town outside New York, Uncle Angelo's Ice Cream Parlour is the place to go. Kids meet over their shakes and ice cream, rocking and rolling to the swinging sounds of the old juke box. When Uncle Angelo suddenly passes away, movie star Deanna la Domme appears on the scene and claims the ice cream parlour, threatening to sell it at the end of the week. What can they do? Will they be able to prove that Deanna la Domme is a fake? Will they find Uncle Angelo’s secret will and save the day? And what will happen to the cleaner Joey Nobody who has nowhere else to go?
