Lionel Switch is a nerdy auto mechanic in a small town on the edge of a nuclear plant. He has a major crush on Charlotte Goodnight, a waitress at the diner, and dreams of becoming a musician like his idol Frankie Fontaine. When Fontaine's limousine pulls up to his garage one day, Lionel is thrilled to work on the car, but trouble brews for Charlotte when a man named Otto Quartz schemes to buy the diner where she works. But none of it matters much, because this is their last day on earth.
