Father and son, Michael and Robert, struggle with the imminent closure of their family's decades-old bowling alley. While packing up, Michael urges Robert to play any song on the old jukebox, savoring the relic's last moments.

Reluctantly, Robert selects an unfamiliar love song, unwittingly transporting himself back to the 1980s inside the alley. In this nostalgic past, Robert connects with Jaime, sparking a brief yet profound romance. However, he faces challenges as he explores the limited use of the time-traveling jukebox and tokens.

As the alley's closure prompts Robert to reflect on his relationship with his father and late mother, he witnesses his parents' love during a final dance in the past. Left with only one token, Robert returns to the present and reconciles with his father. He gives Michael the final token to cherish the bowling alley and their memories one last time.
