Busterʼs turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.
But, with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother pig Rosita, rocker porcupine Ash, earnest gorilla Johnny, shy elephant Meena, and, of course, porcine provocateur Gunter—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by ruthless mogul wolf Jimmy Crystal.
In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystalʼs attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star lion rock legend Clay Calloway. Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife. Even worse, Buster has failed to realise that Mr. Crystal is an egocentric gangster who would easily drop somebody off the roof of a building if heʼs lied to.
As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Rositaʼs leading role in the show gets ripped away and handed to Mr. Crystalʼs spoiled daughter, Porsha. Desperate to save the show, and his life, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage.
What begins as a dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.
