An underground rock band in 1980s Russia experiments with a love triangle and the confines of censorship in Soviet Russia. Caught between musical passion, yearning romantic desire and a changing political landscape, the band tries to rise from their humble performances to make it big. Inspired by the early years of two real rock stars, the film created a new influential mythology, not as an expression of nostalgia for the times before Perestroika, but as a response to the repression of creativity in today’s Russia.
